Research Interests


The aim of the group is to study the consequences of cerebral lesions and dysfunctions in behaviour and cognition. The technique preferentially used in our studies is magnetic resonance imaging, in its structural and functional applications. Our neuroimaging laboratory is equipped with several high-performance workstations. We use a multimodal approach to study connectivity changes associated with aging and degenerative illness as well as the mechanisms of brain reorganization after traumatic brain injury.

Current Research Lines


  • Neuropsychology and neuroimaging in normal aging and degenerative illness
  • Brain Plasticity

Technologies / methods


  • Neuropsychology
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (structural and functional).
