Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

We investigate both cognitive and brain mechanisms of development using different methodologies (speed and accuracy of responses, questionnaires, eye-tracking, EEG/ERPs, MRI). Our research focuses on the study of attention and self-regulation from a multifaceted perspective. We aim at understanding individual and maturational differences in self-regulation and the importance of this capacity for school competence. We also work on the design and testing of training methods to improve children’s cognitive skills.
