Cognitive and memory dysfunction, psychopathology and neuropsychology of memory and control

DysCo team’s scientific projects aim at studying cognitive dysfunction, including memory as well as executive deficits in neurological and psychiatric disorders. These projects are split into two lines of research according to the type of disorder; studies fall within the field of psychopathology (Axis 1) or neuropsychology (including normal and pathological aging, Axis 2).

Studies conducted in Axis 1 explore memory and executive dysfunction in post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety, schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder.

In Axis 2, we seek to understand how executive functions, emotional valence of information, self-reference and stereotype-threat modulate memory processes in normal aging and Alzheimer’s disease.
