The main focus of research in the Memo Team - within the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL) laboratory - is the cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology behind implicit statistical learning.
We explore the entire process of implicit learning from memory formation to consolidation and investigate how this process is affected by different factors such as age, sleep, stimulus modality, as well as various disorders (schizophrenia, epilepsy).
We do so by using diverse neuroscience methods, which include Electroencephalography (EEG) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
The studies performed within our team could lead us not only to a deeper understanding of this fundamental learning mechanism but also to discover how humans rewire their skills and how it may be possible to boost habit change in general.
The team is supported by Idex Lyon fellowship and the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1.
