The Neuropsychology Laboratory is dedicated to investigating the nature of the cognitive, linguistic, perceptual, motor, and emotional deficits that result from brain damage or other forms of neurocognitive dysfunction in adults and children. The Laboratory has two main objectives:
- to understand the functional organization of the human brain and how damage to its various parts leads to cognitive disorders;
- to use knowledge of the working of the brain in order to develop better tools for the assessment of cognitive disorders and to develop better rehabilitation techniques.
Research tools used in the Laboratory include behavioral studies, functional magnetic imaging (fMRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), event related potentials (ERP), eye-tracking, and treatment studies.
