Researcher ECO-3D Team CerCo


I am a researcher at the Cerco, in the Eco3D team. I did my thesis with Yves Trotter and Simon Thorpe on orientation and retinal disparity coding in awake behaving monkey and got my PhD in 1991. I spent 2 years as a post doc in Bill Newsome’s lab at Stanford University until I got a CNRS position in 1993 at the Cerco that was just created in Toulouse. I studied the neural basis of spatial location coding in awake monkeys with single units recordings and now I’m involved in studies on humans using psychophysics, EEG and fMRI to understand the optimization of visual processing by postural and navigation cues in the peripersonal space.
