The INCM is a multidisciplinary research Institute operated by the CNRS and the Aix-Marseille University (UnivMed) in Marseille (France). Our aim is to advance the understanding of brain mechanisms of perception, action, cognition and emotions in both health and disease (Parkinsons, Alzheimer, Autism...).
It is composed of 6 groups of researchers, where basic scientists, neurologists and psychiatrists work closely together, supported by a team of engineers and technicians.
