RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am interested in understanding the role of cortico-cortical connections with the use of reversible inactivation techniques (cooling). I am also involved in the European consortium INSIGHT2+ (neuronal basis of coding of 3D shape and material properties for recognition)

TECHNICS

Electrophysiology : single cell recordings in awake behaving macaque monkeys.

Reversible inactivation of visual areas with cooling probes.

TEACHING

DEA Neurosciences Lyon
