Our lab focuses on the function and plasticity of neuronal circuits. Specifically, we would like to know how sounds are represented in the auditory cortex and how these representations are transformed into long-term memory. This is fundamental in understanding the mind: memories of past experiences shape our personalities and influence our current perception.
Our laboratory is affiliated with the following programmes and/or receives support from the following sources:
The French National Research Agency and the German Research Foundation.
