Jean-René Duhamel (Principal Investigator)
email: jrd@isc.cnrs.fr
phone: (334) 37 91 12 18
Jean-René Duhamel initially trained in human neuropsychology at McGill University and at the University of Marseille, studying brain/behavior relations through the effects of focal brain lesions on cognitive function. After obtaining his PhD, he moved to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, where he investigated the functional organization of the posterior parietal cortex, eye movements and visual mechanisms, focusing on the analysis of single neuron activity in monkeys. As a tenured researcher of the CNRS since 1992, he has pursued his interest in non-human primate cognition, addressing various topics such as multisensory integration, attention, space representation and, more recently, social and communication behavior. Dr Duhamel’s work is supported by the CNRS, Université de Lyon, Labex Cortex, Fondation pour la Recherche sur le Cerveau.More
Sylvia Wirth (Principal Investigator)
email: sylvia.wirth@isc.cnrs.fr
phone: (334) 37 91 12 32
Sylvia Wirth earned a PhD in Neuroscience from Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg, France, dedicated to the understanding of olfactory memory in rodents. She went on a post-doctoral training at New York University characterizing the neural activity underlying memory formation in the medial temporal lobe in the non-human primates. She joined the Institute of Cognitive Sciences in 2009. Her current research focusses on characterizing the nature of neural codes in primates during spatial learning and time processing. She also studies the representation of social stimuli in the brain during picture presentation or during live social interactions in monkeys. Dr Wirth’s research program is supported by the ANR (Agence Nationale de la recherche), University Lyon 1, Labex-Cortex.More
Felipe Rolando
email: felipe.rolando@isc.cnrs.fr
Felipe Rolando is a PhD student since February 2018, working under the supervision of Sylvia Wirth, HDR. He graduated in Neuropsychology and Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Toulouse. There, he obtained his title of psychologist specialized in Neuropsychology after a clinical experience at the University Hospital of Limoges. His current work is aimed at understanding the neural basis of time memory in nonhuman primates, using intracranial electrophysiology. His project is founded by the Agence National de la Recherche.More
Rosella Cirillo
email: rossella.cirillo@isc.cnrs.fr
Rossella Cirillo is a Post Doc since April 2017, working under the supervision of Professor Jean-René Duhamel at the ISC – Institut des Sciences Cognitives Marc Jeannerod in Lyon, France. She graduated with honors in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Sapienza – University of Rome, Italy. There, she obtained her title of psychologist specialized in Neuroscience after a two years experience in a laboratory of Behavioral Pharmacology. Then she started an internship in the laboratory of Behavioral Neurophysiology at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology in Rome under the supervision of Professor Aldo Genovesio. There, she conducted a PhD and obtained the title of Doctor in Cognitive Neuroscience. Her current project concerns the neural basis of social interaction in non-human primates using intracranial electrophysiology.More
