Team “Control- Interoception – Attention”


Goal directed behavior, social, moral cognition, motivation
Main domain: Cognition
Subdomain : Clinical & translational neurosciences

Philippe FOSSATI & Liane SCHMIDT ’s team aims to understand how cognitive control processes integrate external and internal signals, and how this integration takes place on behavioral and neural levels, in healthy subjects and patients with impaired cognitive control (i.e., in depression and obesity).


The team will :

  • Investigate the role of brain-body interactions for placebo effects on dietary decision-making, determine whether accurate interoceptive awareness minimize placebo effects
  • Explore the role of motivation for placebo effects
  • Attempt to disentangle aberrant saliency and impaired cognitive control in the establishment of depression.
