Research Project

We bridge neuroscience and engineering by trying to answer to typical questions like:

We use this fundamental knowledge to build from vision to audition and from audition to vision sensory substitution systems, to develop new non invasive prosthesis by exploiting the great plasticity of the brain. For a better evaluation of the impacts of substitution prosthesis, we look at physiological mechanisms in relation with plasticity and sensory substitution. Application examples of this work (assistive technology for artificial vision, artificial audition, artistic creation, analysis/coding/recognition of audible or visible signals) are listed in the publications under the following link . Last developments in artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced signal processing take part in our work.
