INSERM - U1093 Cognition, Action, and Sensorimotor Plasticity

Plasticity in the understanding of corticospinal processes involved in actions and in rehabilitation of motor function is at the heart of our scientific project. The three principal axes of research of our lab are (1) the study of the impact of physical activity on cerebral plasticity, (2) what are the neuronal networks involved in mental imagery and motor execution and supporting laws underlying control of movement and (3) influence of normal and pathological aging on sensorimotor processes.

Results of our investigations lead to the development of innovative technologies to assess and recondition motor functions. Our main objective is to offer our expertise to local and international authorities in terms of undestanding of motor control development, learning and impairment as well as tools developed to quantify new therapeutic methods.
