MY RESEARCH
“My research focuses on the analysis and maturation of neural networks, be they respiratory or cortical, physiological or pathological, in children and in animals. We have developed tools that make it possible to describe electric (EEG) and metabolic (NIRS) activities. Their modulations in pathological situations, as well as tracking the sources of these cerebral activities in children, and particularly prematurely so, are central to this research. In 2004, we created the GRAMFC, an innovation that allows simultaneous analysis of modifications in electric (High resolution EEG) local hemodynamic (High Resolution NIRS, Optical imaging) cerebral activity, both physiologically (cerebral maturation) and for pathological conditions (anoxic ischemia in premature babies, prenatal neurological suffering, and convulsions/epilepsy in children). With its combination of neuropsychologists, intensive care paediatricians, and signal processing experts, our research unit (EA4293) was recognized both in 2008 by the French Ministry of Research and in 2010 by the Inserm (U 1105).

Research-based**

Designed for getting direct access
to the scalp

Due to its unique design structure, Medelopt® solves the hair constraint which is the main fNIRS-related constraint that researchers encounter. LED-emitters LED and electropods come directly in contact with the scalp’s skin.

Customized
headset setup

Thanks to the headset design, sensor placement (emitters/Receptors and EEG electrodes) can be set up to record the whole head, from the cognitive to the visual area.

Long recording
is now possible

 Pressure zones are distributed homogeneously and uniformly around the head. Because of this, long recordings are made possible.

APPLICATIONS

 

SPORT SCIENCES

The possibility given by NIRS to move freely makes possible recordings of
brain activity during outdoor activities or physical exercise.
Exploring brain mechanisms involved in sport sciences
improve our understanding of the relationship
between mind and motor action or the effect of cognition on motor performance
during localized exercise or whole-body exercise. For example, NIRS devices could
be a way to explore decision-making mechanisms in reactionary sport like
tennis or to determine how physical exercise influence the main executive functions

COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE

The point of a wearable device for cognitive neuroscience that evaluates brain function in response to sensory stimulation lies essentially in the possibility of developing ecological stimuli that minimic everyday life situations in the best way possible. With a wearable device, it becomes possible to map out the brain structures involved in tasks such as driving or sports in real-life situations, as opposed to what is possible with fMRIs.

DBS/VSN

The appeal of the device lies in its compatibility with devices that involve electrical stimulation of the central (Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)) or peripheral (Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VSN)) nervous system. This device thus makes it possible to map out the structures of the cortical surface that are modulated by these stimuli without having them be generated within the constraints of the electric fields produced by the stimulation or the constraints of magnetic fields inherent to MRIs and that make these maps difficult to produce in cases of DBS and VNS.

Video of the dynamic appearance of NIRS results in a patient with epilepsy with a central initial focus that spreads in the frontal regions during an epileptic interictal spike.

EPILEPSY RESEARCH

Epilepsy involves complex mechanisms that combine neuronal, astrocytic, and vascular interactions, particularly within the neurovascular coupling involved in epileptic spikes and seizures.

The simultaneous analysis of various neuronal and vascular compartments by the EEG in tandem with the NIRS makes it possible to see the mechanisms involved and their interactions by a multimodal, multidimensional approach. Additionally, this simultaneous approach combines the EEG’s high temporal resolution with the high spatial resolution of the NIRS
