The laboratory focuses on the multiple brain areas involved in processing episodic memories (spatio-temporal information) during navigation. The researchers are studying the changes in the brain that occur as a result of performing a spatial memory task. These changes could be visual, auditory, olfactory or proprioceptive.

To detect the changes, the lab uses functional neuroimaging, neuroanatomy, neuropsychology, and genetic and hormonal analyses with people of all ages affected by epilepsy, leukemia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.
