Cognition, Action, and sensorimotor plasticity

Industrial development and R & D

In 2008, the University of Bourgogne created a structure dedicated to Research and Development as a branch under the name Welience. At the initiative of the laboratory, a new component was created: the cluster “Cognition & Movement”. Beyond our INSERM Unit, it also includes the Laboratory for the Study of Learning and Development (LEAD UMR CNRS 5022) and the laboratory of Electronics, Computer Science and Imaging (UMR CNRS 5158 Le2i). This pole.

In the clinical domain, this Pole Cognition & Movement works jointly with the Platform for Technological Investigation, headed by JM Casillas, and labeled in the multi-thematic CIC CHU Dijon by INSERM and DHOS (end of 2008).

set of non-invasive methods to evaluate motricity at large, under biomechanical and bioenergetic: treadmils for walking and balance, conventional and embedded VO2, effort tests, ECG, heart rate meter, infrared muscle spectroscopy muscle, various force sensors ...
It allows, under strict control of ethics applied in clinical research, to evaluate research protocols developed by the unit U1093, particularly in the field of rehabilitation and innovative devices aimed at reducing motor disabilities, whatever their origin (neurological, cardiovascular, orthopedic, age-related ...).

The objective of the Cluster is to provide skills around motor and deficiencies focused on Learning, Development and Rehabilitation. The approach is to develop techniques to support rehabilitation of sensory, motor and cognitive deficits that benefit from technological advances and the latest theory in the field of cognitive science (neuroscience, psychology and cognitive ergonomics).

The regional Innovation and Entrepreneurship will host by the end of 2012 a building dedicated to the activities of the cluster of ca 0.5 acres of floor space. Although the heart of this space will be dedicated to the study of movement, a significant proportion of the space will available to research teams to investigate learning and motor and cognitive rehabilitation. Adapted physical activity, virtual reality and music will be the foundations of these research questions.
