Procedural memory : neuronal substrates, physiopathology and modelisation

PhD Student: Nagham Badreddine
Laboratories: GIN / GIPSA-lab
Procedural memory is defined as the memory of habits, the memory involved in learning new skills such as riding a bike, playing an instrument, driving… A group of internal cerebral structures called the basal ganglia is involved in the formation of this memory. Although these structures have been well described anatomically, the interaction between them and the modifications occurring at the different phases of procedural memory formation have not been characterized.
The aim of our project is to determine these interactions in physiological and pathological conditions and to create a mathematical model of these networks involved in procedural memory formation.
