Investissement d'Avenir
LabEx Cortex

CORTEX is a rare and combined 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.

Understanding cognition and its biological roots, but also its pathologies requires a comprehension of its genesis, its structure, and its physiology. CORTEX pushes this integrative approach, which allows tapping into the resources of our brain for rehabilitation; the design of new and therapeutic procedures.

One further perspective will be to pave the way, via reverse engineering of the brain, to the emerging field of bio-inspired technologies.
