CORTEX International Meeting 2013Published on April 22, 2013
LabEx CORTEX is organising an International Conference in Lyon next June....
of Neuroscience in Lyon. The leading neuroscience teams in Lyon (as
reflected by the A+ evaluation of the AERES) are characterised by their
involvement in the "Construction, Function and Cognitive Function and
Rehabilitation of the Cortex". The "CORTEX" project was awarded 11.5M
Euros. Directed by Henry Kennedy, it will run to December 2019. CORTEX
is a rare and combined multidisciplinary effort to understand the cortex
and human cognition, 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 including stem cell
biotechnology. One further perspective will be to pave the way, via
reverse engineering of the brain, to the emerging field of bio-inspired
Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute A+
Team Kennedy: Cortical architecture coding and Perception.
Team Duhamel: Neurophysiology of cognitive processes.
Team Bertrand: Brain dynamics and cognition.
Team Castellani: Neuronal fasciculation, motoneuron axon guidance.
