Propagation of cerebral waves : understanding the mechanisms that allow attention to act in space and time
Cerebral oscillations have fed numerous multiples debates in cognitive sciences. They have fascinated many researchers but whole scientific fields have dismissed them as epiphenomena. In the past decades, several theories have been proposed that link oscillations and such functions as attention. However, they rarely considered the spatial and temporal aspects of oscillations.
In the WAVES project, Laura Dugué proposes to use multimodale imaging approach based on a computational model to study the impact of the spatio-temporal organization of cerebral oscillations on human attention. This projet, at the interface of cognitive psychology and neurosciences, should bridge the gap between the spatial and temporal dynamics that underlie our multisensory experience of the surrounding world.
Laura Dugué obtained a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience in Toulouse in 2013. She was then a post-doctoral fellow at New-York University. In September 2016, she became Assistant Professor at Paris Descartes University and joined the Integrative Neuroscience and Cognition Center (UMR 8002 CNRS). In 2019, she was made junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France.
