Laboratory of vision, attention and action VISATTACC

VISATTAC
Bienvenue au VISATTAC. Nous nous intéressons aux interactions complexes et fascinantes entre l'attention spatiale, la perception visuelle et la planification du mouvement. Nous avons recours aux études comportementales et à la stimulation de différentes zones du cerveau chez des individus sains ou qui présentent des problèmes neurologiques. Ceci nous permettra de déterminer quelles zones du cerveau jouent un rôle essentiel dans ces fonctions. L’objectif ultime est d'appliquer ces connaissances au domaine de la réadaptation.
