ANTICIPATION AND ITS TROUBLES
My research activity is devoted to the study of anticipatory eye movements. In order to better understand the neuronal bases of anticipation, behavioral and electrophysiological experiments are realized. The role of the cortical region referred to as the ‘Supplementary Eye Field’ in anticipation is investigated with electrophysiological methods (single neuron recordings, EEG). Moreover, we also carry out an important set of behavioral studies in Parkinson’s disease patients. The dual approach consisting in studying fundamental processes in healthy subjects and at the same time doing experiments with Parkinson’s disease patients is particularly fruitful and improves our understanding of anticipation and temporal cognition in health and disease.
