Project "Links between brain activity (EEG) and cognitive capacities" In this project, we are first exploring the relations between brain activity, using EEG recordings, and memory in typically developing children, young and healthy aging older adults. Second, we are characterizing the EEG microstates that are present in individuals with Down syndrome (Trisomy 21 or T21) or Williams syndrome (WS).
Project "Profiles of spatial abilities in Down and Williams syndromes" Down syndrome (Trisomy 21 or T21) and Williams syndrome (WS) are genetic disorders characterized by mental retardation and impaired abilities to process visuospatial information. Nevertheless, the ability of individuals with Down syndrome or Williams syndrome to navigate in the real word have not been well studied. The goal of this study is to characterize this capacity in these individuals.
