     Welcome to the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory at McGill University. Understanding the neurophysiological basis of cognition is one of the greatest challenges faced by neuroscientists. In the last decades we have made considerable progress searching for neural correlates of cognitive functions in the primate brain, however what we currently know is just the tip of the iceberg.

     The laboratory uses a combination of techniques such as behavioral measurements, extra-cellular single cell recordings and brain mapping in order to explore the physiology of cognition, more specifically, the physiology of attention, visuomotor transformations and motion perception. Ultimately, the results of our research will be applied to the study of diseases that affect human health.
