Brice Bathellier

I lead the Cortical dynamics and multisensory processing group in the UNIC lab (Unité de Neuroscience, Information et Complexité) of the CNRS.

I am  interested in understanding the neural basis of sensory perception in mice using a broad spectrum of techniques and viewpoints such as high-precision, large-scale neuronal networks recordings, optogenetics, computational neuroscience and mouse behavior.
