The Group for Neural Theory was founded in 2005 as part of the Laboratoire de Neurosciences CognitivesD?partment d'Etudes Cognitives (DEC) at the Ecole Normale Sup?rieure (ENS) in Paris. Our main research goal is to understand the basis of information processing in the brain by identifying links between neural dynamics and neural function. To that end, we investigate a broad range of topics in computational neuroscience, including models of probabilistic inference, feature integration, and statistical learning in neuronal architectures; models of drug addiction; models of spiking and non-spiking recurrent networks; models of short-term memory and decision-making; spike-based learning algorithms; short-term synaptic plasticity; among others. At the larger context Laboratoire de Neurosciences Cognitives offer research in cognitive neuroscience spanning from studis of decision making and cognitive control (E Koechlin team), cortical mechanisms  of speech processing (AL Giraud team) and social cognition (J Grezes team). We further have multiple links with a number of neuroscience laboratories and institutes in the Paris area making a wide range of potential otopics ofr research intership possible.
