Research at the DEC covers the full breadth of human cognitive abilities in four research programs.

BANNERResearch in these programs uses the concepts, methods and techniques from a wide variety of disciplines: analytical philosophy, theoretical and experimental linguistics, anthropology, cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, neuro-economics, cognitive neuroscience, integrative neuroscience, and computational neuroscience.

Experimental platforms are located at Ecole normale supérieure, Hôpital Mondor and Hôpital Cochin Port-Royal, and allow for the testing of infants, children, and both healthy and brain-lesioned adults. These platforms are equipped with eye-trackers, as well as with EEG and NIRS recording systems.

The EUR Frontiers in Cognition supports research at the DEC.
