CORTEX - Construction, cognitive function, rehabilitation and repair

CORTEX is the result of a unique multidisciplinary team whose aim is to understand the cortex and cognition. It uses an integrative approach based on the study of cortical networks and multiscale interactions, from cells to the individual. Understanding the biological foundations of cognition, and the reasons for potential dysfunctions, requires intricate knowledge of the cortex's genesis, structure and physiology.

CORTEX has many objectives: to develop new methods of cognitive remediation, to develop new, effective therapeutic procedures and to contribute to the development of biotechnology.
