Research work

Laurent Cohen, Lionel Nacache and Paolo Bartolomeo’s team is devoted to the study of cognitive functions with an exclusive or prevalent development in humans, namely language and conscious cognition. The study of brain-damaged patients occupies a central position in its methodological approach. For the study of both language and consciousness, and with both patients and healthy subjects, it resorts to state-of-the-art behavioural methods and multimodal brain imaging.
