The Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience (Bertarelli Chair in Cognitive Neuroprosthetics) targets the brain mechanisms of body perception, body awareness and self-consciousness.
Projects rely on the investigation of healthy subjects, neurological, psychiatric, orthopedic patients by combining psychophysical and cognitive paradigms, state of the art neuroimaging techniques (high resolution fMRI, intracranial and surface EEG, TMS), and engineering-based approaches (virtual reality, vestibular stimulation, and robotics).
Next to studying the brain mechanisms of body perception, cognition, and self-consciousness, we pursue a very active line of research in neuroprosthetics, sensory substitution, neurorehabilitation in interdisciplinary fields of virtual reality, neuroscience, robotics, haptics, and brain-computer interfaces.
