Brice Bathellier, winner of the Foulon Award

The Foulon Award is an annual biology prize set up in 1940. It is awarded alternately to research in the fields of animal biology, neuroscience and plant biology. Brice Bathellier is a physicist specializing in neuroscience and CNRS Research Director at the Hearing Institute. His research focuses on the central mechanisms of auditory perception, combining observation and optical or electrical manipulation of the activity of large neural networks with mathematical modeling. He has shed new light on how auditory information is encoded by the cerebral cortex and its causal role in perception.
