Attention and Control
The aim of the team’s research work is to provide a better understanding of sensorimotor and cognitive processes involved in the execution and perception of motor activities.
On the one hand, the aim is to identify the mental operations occurring between the input of various items of information grasped in the environment, the treatment of that information and the production of a response to it, and on the other hand, the aim is to study the modulation of such processes by various factors such as age, expertise, physical condition or the central nervous system’s pathological resp. non-pathological condition.
The methods used are those of experimental psychology, psychophysics, psychophysiology and neuroimaging.
The research work is of paramount theoretical interest and also help implement intervention counseling in schools, towards a high level of autonomy, or towards the rehabilitation or preservation of autonomy.
