Scientific summary

Neuroinformatics, neuroimagery, signal and image analysis, human vision.

I am involved in human and animal brain studies based on functional neuroimaging. My favorite application is Human Vision (color vision, color assimilation grapheme-color syneshtesia and saccadic eye movements). I also study vision deficits especially related to Parkinson's disease progression (see the PD project) and Blepharospasm. 
At the methodological level, I develop methods for MR brain image analysis: brain lesion segmentation (e.g. RAAI sponsored by the MIAI Grenoble Institute), brain connectivity (GRAACE project) and biomarker imaging extraction (DONUTS project).

I manage projects in Neuroinformatics to facilitate data and image processing sharing in neuroimaging (see the precursor NeuroLOG) and the current IAM (Information Analysis and Management) project for designing a versatile facility for data and image processing tool management for in vivo imaging in the context of France Life Imaging. See the recent RT MAPPING on population imaging,  the workshop APPNING, RT APPNING or the SAIN research network about animal population imaging.

I am one of the cofounders of PIXYL, a start-up that develops innovative computerized solutions for medical research. I manage NICOSIA (NeuroImaging, Cognition, Signal and Image Analysis) a translaboratory group which gathers in Grenoble scientists interested in various methodological aspects of neuroimaging data processing.

I am member of the steering committee of IXXI, a research center on complex systems and the scientific board of NeuroCoG, an interdisciplinary research program for a better understanding of brain and mind.

I also worked on AI-based systems for patient monitoring, temporal reasoning and models for medical reasoning. The application field was automatic control of therapy delivered to patients hospitalized in intensive care units. A prototype of a computerized protocol for pressure support delivrance NéoGanesh was firstly designed. Several scientific publications demonstrate its therapeutic interest and an industrial version embedded into a commercial respirator in now available SmartCARE/PS (see details).
