Marie-Helene Grosbras has a multidisciplinary training, with Master degrees in Biology, Neuropsychology and Epistemology. Her research, in Cognitive Neuroscience, concerns action-perception coupling, in particular in the context of processing social stimuli. She is particularly interested in how this couping is implemented in the brain and how this implementation matures during adolescence.
SOCIAL BRAIN ORGANISATION
The "social brain"comprises the set of cerebral regions involved in perceiving, processing and reacting to social stimuli.
Brain imaging studies have now well characterized networks of subsets of these regions involved in specific social functions.
|Interfering transiently with different nodes of the social brains impairs specific aspects of social perception. this demonstrates that each of the targeted region is indeed causlly involved in specific social processing|
DEVELOPMENT OF EMOTION RECOGNITION FROM FACES, BODIES AND VOICES FROM CHILDHOOD TO EARLY ADULTHOOD.
Neural bases of gaze orienting in social context : what changes during adolescence? (AMIDEX 2014-2017)
ADOBRAIN : Making sense of the social brain in adolescence (ANR 2015-2020)
The goal if this 5 years ANR funded project is to investigate how the brain mechanisms that link social perception and action control change during adolescence. A series of behavioural and brain imaging experiments are carried out to : 1- Characterise the development of social signals perception in the brain, 2- Understand how these social signals influence action control at different periodes of adolescent development.
