NeuroSpin, directed by Stanislas Dehaene, is a research center for innovation in brain imaging, located on the CEA Paris-Saclay site. At NeuroSpin, physicists, mathematicians, neuroscientists and doctors join forces to develop synergistically the tools and models that will allow to better understand the functioning of the normal and pathological brain, before or after treatment. Focused on neuroimaging, the research conducted ranges from technological and methodological developments (data acquisition and processing) to preclinical and clinical neuroscience, including cognitive neuroscience.
NeuroSpin has four research units located at the Saclay site and one unit located in Bordeaux :
A team from NeuroSpin has recently published 3 papers that address the question of how we perceive time from a cognitive neuroscience perspective, using real-life temporal experiments, laboratory experiments and MEG brainwave measurements indicative of the passage of time, and that shed light on how the brain constructs our experience of lived time.
Researchers at NeuroSpin have recently published 3 articles in Magnetic Resonance in Medicine on their technological and methodological developments that will help meet the challenges of ultra-high field MRI for tomorrow's medical brain imaging.
NeuroSpin researchers map chimpanzee brain structural connectivity for the first time using diffusion MRI data. New image processing enabled them to create two atlases of deep and superficial white matter connectivity. A step towards a better understanding of the evolution of the hominid brain.
In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from UNICOG and BAOBAB use high-field functional MRI to reveal the brain areas where the representations of quantities generated by a mental arithmetic operation are encoded.
A l’occasion d’une rencontre entre nos deux chargées de recrutement de volontaires « sains », retour sur cette activité indispensable pour l’ensemble de la recherche biomédicale menée au sein de deux départements de l’institut Joliot : NeuroSpin et le SHFJ.
NeuroSpin researchers show that spontaneous neuronal oscillations in the 'delta' frequency band (0.5-3 Hz), the wave of unconscious states, can be observed in awake human volunteers using MEG. A step towards characterizing underlying physiological signals?
Des chercheurs de NeuroSpin, en collaboration avec NeuroPSI montrent que l’effet des ultra hauts champs magnétiques sur l’appareil vestibulaire de souris est transitoire.
To carry out their activities, researchers of NeuroSpin have access to platforms, certified IBiSA and part of the National Infrastructures in Biology and Health: France Life Imaging (FLI) and NeurATRIS :
These instruments are open to the national or international scientific community, to academics or industrials. Do you want to

CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
