Liuba Papeo

I am a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience, with a M.Sc. Psychology. After my Ph.D. (2010, SISSA Trieste), I joined the Department of Psychology at Harvard University as a Marie-Curie postdoctoral fellow (2011-2013). I completed the postdoctoral research training at CIMeC, University of Trento (2013-2014). In 2015, I joined the CBC at University Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona funded by a Marie Curie Cofund program grant. Since February 2016, I am tenured researcher at the ISC of CNRS, and Principle Investigator of the research program “THEMPO” funded by an European Research Council Starting Grant. Email

Etienne Abassi

I have a M.Sc. degree in Neurosciences and Behavioral Sciences
(IBFA, University of Caen) and B.Sc. degrees in Information Technology and Computer Science (EPSI, Montpellier) and in Psychology and Neuropsychology (University of Montpellier). I am now a Ph.D student doing behavioral and fMRI research on the processing of human-human and human-object interaction. Email

Parvaneh Adibpour

I am postdoc fellow in the lab since December 2017. Starting with a bachelor’s (AUT, Iran) and a master’s degree in biomedical engineering (Paris Descartes-ESPCI, France), I then completed my PhD in cognitive neuroscience studying infant brain development, with a focus on the development of face and speech processing abilities (UNICOG, France). Swinging between Papeolab and Babylab , Baby-Lyon I am interested in understanding the social mind, its development and the neural mechanisms that support it. My current research in the lab addresses questions on the neural correlates of perceiving social interactions using EEG. Email

Cristina-Ioana Galusca

I am a postdoctoral fellow with a Master’s Degree in Cognitive Science and Language from Universitat de Barcelona (Spain), and a PhD in Biomedicine from the Center for Brain and Cognition, at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Spain). I am fascinated by the ultra-social nature of human beings, by how humans become members of social groups and how they effortlessly acquire the rich aspects of their cultures. My research focuses on: (1) how social interactions and communication are identified and interpreted by human infants and children; (2) how nonverbal social signals, such as eye contact, pointing or eye gaze, benefit communication and the transmission of cultural information.

Nicolas Goupil

I have a M.Sc. degree in Cognitive Sciences (2018, Université Lyon 2) and a B.Sc. degree in Psychology (2016, Université Rennes 2). I am working as the lab manager and research assistant, contributing to data collection and analysis in behavioral and EEG studies. Email

Mitra Taghizadeh Sarabi

I am a post-doctoral fellow with a Ph.D. degree in Cognitive Neuroscience from Kochi University of Technology, Japan. During my Ph.D., I studied the reorganization of resting-state functional connectivity after visual perceptual learning. I am now working on the cortical representation of objects using fMRI and EEG.
