CORTEX is a rare and combined multidisciplinary effort to understand the Cortex and human cognition and behavior, based on systems level studies of networks and interactions at multiple scales, from neurons to individuals. Understanding cognition and its biological roots, but also its pathologies requires a comprehension of cortical genesis, its structure, and its physiology. CORTEX pushes this integrative approach, which allows tapping into the resources of our Cortex for rehabilitation ; the design of new and successful therapeutic procedures.
CORTEX activity is structured around four main fields of research :
CORTEX will establish an internationally competitive teaching program in synergy with its research strategy comprising fundamental and clinical research with technological innovation.
CORTEX is directed by Henry KENNEDY (SBRI). The CORTEX Consortium involves 6 partners :
Behavioral economists and engineers at GATE are involved in the third field of research.
