Partners of the lab

BLRI (Brain & Language Research Institute)

To understand the way that language functions and to model it by bringing together experts in linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, medicine and computer science, such is the project of BLRI. The objective is to create a generic model of the processing of language and its cerebral bases. In this way BLRI intends to contribute to this ambitious question: to understand how man processes language, even as far as its cerebral functions. Fundamentally interdisciplinary and principally rooted in SHS, BLRI includes 6 laboratories in the region (LPL, LPC, LNC, LIF, IBD and LIA). It relies on the creation of a team of 5 engineers and technicians who guide the treatment of the data acquired within the partner platforms. It also welcomes numerous foreign colleagues for research visits. Finally, BLRI supports education by offering doctoral fellowships and by putting in place new forms of training. (www)

ILCB (Institute of Language, Communication and the Brain)

The ILCB constitutes a major initiative in Cognitive Science. It aims to explore the neural basis of human language and communication by studying the components of L&C and proposing unifying models and architectures. The originality and ambition of the ILCB lies in the integration of a wide range of disciplines, methodologies and experimental techniques that all contribute to the description of human language processing and communication (as paradigmatic examples of high-level cognitive functions) in laboratory and naturalistic settings.

Carnot Cognition

Cognitive technologies (human-system interaction, or human-human interaction), mediated by technologies that engage or modify cognitive functions, increase the added value of products and services in an increasingly adaptive use context: The individual user, his environment and the modes of interaction that are at stake. (www)
