  • NeuroCog's 2021 wishes
    from January 29, 2021 to February 28, 2021
    2021 marks the final year for the Cross Disciplinary Project NeuroCog.Three years of interdisciplinary work between Grenoble laboratories involved in brain research, from neuron to networks and from human to social cognition.Monica Baciu, co-sponsor of the project, presents the objectives and perspectives of this milestone year.
  • William Havard, a NeuroCog PhD student under the co-supervision of the LIDILEM - LIG/GETALP laboratories, has just published a third paper in the framework of his thesis for the CoNLL conference, the SIGNLL Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning, which will take place on November 19 and 20, 2020.
  • Job : Graduate assistant in experimental psychology
    from July 21, 2020 to July 31, 2020
    The Faculty of political and social Sciences and The Institute of Psychology offer a Graduate Assistant position in experimental psychology. Our research team (BEAM lab) is developing, in collaboration with the neuro imaging research laboratory (LREN) of the University of Lausanne, a research project that aims to understand the principles of learning-dependent functional and structural brain plasticity in humans.
  • In advanced stages of muscular dystrophies, including Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a large subset of muscle fibers shows longitudinal splitting or branching. However, despite critical impact on muscle cytoarchitecture, on vulnerability to contraction-induced damage and on muscle weakening, mechanisms of muscle fibers splitting remain largely unexplored. The goal of this project is to identify molecular determinants and characterize cellular pathways controlling muscle fiber splitting.

From Neurons to Social Cognition in Grenoble

The NeuroCoG project aims to understand the biological, neurophysiological and functional bases of behavioral and cognitive processes in normal and pathological conditions, from cells to networks and from individual to social cognition. NeuroCoG is based on a wide-spectrum interdisciplinary approach (e.g. fundamental and cognitive neuroscience, chemistry, physics, cognitive and social psychology, education, language sciences, computer sciences, applied mathematics, and engineering; as well as clinical specialties such as neurology and psychiatry).
