Effect of gravitational context on brain processing: A study of sensori-motor integration using event related EEG dynamics (NeuroCOG II)

Research project PX/8/LP/24 (Research action PX)

Persons :

  •   CHERON Guy - Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/1/2006-31/12/2008

Description :

We wish to study 5 cognitive processes (Perception, Attention, Memorization, Decision and Action) involved in 4 different tasks that astronauts may encounter: T1 visuo-motor tracking, T2 perception of self-orientation, T3 3D navigation and T4 discrimination of objects orientation. The roles played by gravity on these neural processes will be analysed by means evoked potentials and EEG dynamics methods during virtual reality stimulation.
