Director : Daniel E. Shulz
The different research teams at UNIC focus on three closely linked scientific issues :
1) characterizing the synaptic and cellular mechanisms engaged in the ongoing activation state and sensory evoked neural dynamics in cortical-like structures (during development and adulthood) ;
2) explaining/modeling the emergence of low-level perception correlates in primary sensory cortical areas ;
3) explaining/modeling the influence of lateral (intrinsic) and top-down (extrinsic) feedback connectivities.
The research at UNIC is supported by the CNRS, the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), Idex grants from Paris-Saclay (NeuroSaclay and I-Code), EC-grants from the Future Emerging Technology (FET) Directorate of the European Brain Community, and the « Human Brain Project » Flagship.
UNIC is also in charge of two international antennae, the French node of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facilities (INCF) (dir : Yves Frégnac and Andrew Davison) and the European Institute of Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN, dir : Alain Destexhe).
