The lab

Discover how the lab works, the techniques used, and the partners and collaborators helping us to advance research in brain imaging and child health.


Our primary objective is to study how communication, comprehension and expression skills develop from the first days of life and how brain development underpins these high-level functions. Several projects in the lab also aim to give us a better understanding of how various pathologies may affect the brain and cognitive development, as well as their underlying predictive markers. We use various methods to answer our research questions, including neuropsychological assessment and techniques for recording brain activity, such as near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and electroencephalography (EEG).
