Artificial intelligence to decode thoughts

Despite recent advances in brain imaging, the brain’s representation of the visual world is still largely unknown. Using a new artificial intelligence technique - deep learning - to decode brain activity recorded in functional imaging, CerCo’s Rufin VanRullen and Leila Reddy can reconstruct images seen - or imagined - by subjects.

A little monkey that helps to better understand the aging of humans

Human life expectancy is gradually increasing while healthy life expectancy tends to stagnate. Aging is accompanied by a multitude of impairments of brain functions such as attention, memory and all the executive functions that guarantee the person’s cognitive autonomy.

A model explains how the early development of depth perception depends on our environment.

is our sensory perception innate or acquired ? In order to better understand how the neural mechanisms underlying our visual perception, and in particular depth perception, are established from birth, a team of researchers from the Cerco laboratory (Tushar Chauhan, Timothée Masquelier, Alexandre Montlibert and Benoit Cottereau) has used computer models based on artificial neural networks.
