While you will also find on this website my CV and list of publications, this blog has been initially created to describe how I run field studies in neuroscience. At the moment you will find the research project that I conducted in Rwanda, the project with the military and the projet with inmates in prisons. Soon will come the description of research projects in Cambodia and Israel.
Field research is not very common in neuroscience. As a consequence, we, neuroscientists and psychologists, know almost nothing about human cognition from cultures present in parts of the world where neuroscience do not exist (e.g., central Africa, indigenous tribes in Asia or in central America, etc.). Neuroscience mostly only focuses on WEIRD individuals, that are, Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic. This has to change if we want neuroscience to reach the next level in terms of comprehension of the human brain.
The aim of this blog is to show that despite all the difficulties that it involves, conducting field research totally worth it – not only as a human experience but also to study human cognition at a broader level.
So please, do not hesitate to contact me for collaborations or research projects that will send me on unexplored lands!
