cognitive neuroscience. The team led by Professor Piotr Jaskowski has
several years of experience in EEG studies. Our laboratory is prepared to
measure EEG, EMG, GSR, and motion trajectories. The research project focuses
on the neural basis of developmental dyslexia, hemispheric differences in
attentional functions in schizophrenic, dyslexics and healthy participants.
Apart from these issues, several other topics are investigated in our
department: subliminal perception, information processing strategies in
sensori-motor tasks, prism adaptation, and sensori-motor synchronization.
 

Job Description
As part of the research team the fellow will collaborate to the Initial
Training Network for Lateralized Attention Networks (ITN-LAN). The long-term
scientific objectives of the ITN-LAN are:
(1) To validate and standardize a behavioural battery for assessing the
attentional networks of the two cerebral hemispheres and their interaction,
(2) To study its neurophysiological correlates using EEG/ERP The project
includes hands-on courses, involving the fellow in a collaborative project
that offer integrated training across different fields.
