Our team is formed by researches interested in attention for
action, attention rehabilitation, attention in reasoning and
consciousness…We all share our concern for investigating
the mind from a cognitive perspective. Our main lines of research
are (see Research lines):
A. Cost of shift
of mental set: Experimental
studies with Reaction Time methodology (RT) [read
B. The application of cognitive science research to
enhance learning, reasoning.
With new methodologies:
We use RT in contexts where it is non usual (like reasoning);
The experimental paradigm of task shifting (that represents
a development of the RT experimental tasks to study sequential
effects). We also employ Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) to
performance (LPSA) in the contexts of microworlds; Subjetive

a. Mental set reconfiguration in the context of Mental Models
b. Decision making in real situations like political elections
or financial contexts.
