Our research

The main focus of our cognitive neuroscience research team is to investigate learning, memory, and consolidation processes underlying habit-like behaviors. Our studies benefit from the approach of lifespan development and neuropsychology.

Rewiring automatic, habit-like behaviors is undoubtedly one of the most important scientific challenges today. Beyond its basic scientific significance of understanding brain plasticity, it has important implications for the health sciences aiming to overcome harmful behaviors such as addictions and obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and training programs targeting the improvement of automatic behaviors, including skills involved in as cello or piano playing, sports, or communication.
