Thierry Pozzo
Professor of neurosciences

Thierry Pozzo is a professor of neurosciences at the University of Bourgogne and senior honorary member of the Institut Universitaire de France. His research project involves studying the organizational principles of human motor skills and identifying the underlying physiological mechanisms. The developed axes consider recent advances in neuroscience, which suggest a close coupling between Action and Perception. He supports the hypothesis that cognition is embodied in the bodily experience of individuals and depends on the motor system, unlike the metaphor of the computer brain. Finally, the narrowness of these questions and the standards imposed by science has convinced him for several years to extend his thinking to the field of image perception and reciprocal contaminations between Art and Sciences. This part of its activities takes place within the framework of the organization of scientific popularization events within the Espace EJ Marey, a platform partly dedicated to uncover the work of this local scholar.
