This workshop is organized in connection with two research programs, HEIDI and CORTEX. It also celebrates the inauguration of the new experimental platform, GATE-LAB.

CORTEX (Construction, Cognitive Function, Rehabilitation and Repair of the Cortex)

CORTEX is a project that was awarded the label “Laboratoire d’Excellence” by the French Government. It combines multidisciplinary effort to understand the brain and human cognition, based on systems level studies of networks and interactions of multiple scales, from neurons to individuals. Creating a coherent research program that integrates the communities pursuing cortex development, physiology and anatomy, cognitive science, medicine, social sciences is a primary ambition of CORTEX.

HEIDI: How Emotions Influence Decision-making: an Interdisciplinary perspective

HEIDI is a research project funded by the ANR, the National Research Agency, and developed jointly by GATE and the Center of Cognitive Neurosciences. The goal of this project is to provide an integrative account of motivational and decisional processes, combining behavioral economics, experimental economics, computational modeling, and functional MRI to study their effects on reward and decision making-related brain activity.

PI: M.C. Villeval. Co-PI: J.C. Dreher.
