(Code: ULB684)


Person in charge of the unit : PEIGNEUX Philippe.

Researches conducted at the Neuropsychology and Functional Neuroimaging Research Unit [UR2NF - Unité de Recherches en Neuropsychologie et Neuroimagerie
Fonctionnelle] are mainly but not exclusively focused on investigating the relationships between sleep and memory consolidation processes, and in a wider
perspective centered on the interrelationships between cognitive processes and vigilance states, including sleep and biological rhythms. A specific focus is
made on the processes by which novel representations are created in memory and the processes by which novel information is consolidated in long-term memory.
We are also interested in the understanding and investigation of major neuropsychological syndromes. Furthermore, UR2NF members are deeply involved in
numerous collaborations with other research units and departments of the ULB faculties (psychology, medicine, Erasme hospital ...) and other Belgian and
foreign universities in the framework of our expertise in functional neuroimaging techniques. UR2NF is affiliated at CRCN - Centre de Recherches en Cognition et
Neurosciences at the Faculté des Sciences Psychologiques et de l'Education de l'ULB, and at UNI - ULB Neurosciences Institute (http://uni.ulb.ac.be).
