Activités de recherche

Our research focuses on the investigation of the neural correlates and the phenomenology of dreams and nightmares. More precisely, we are investigating the role of cortical and subcortical structures in dream generation and the overall dream experience, as well as their dysfunction in nightmare disorder. We are also interested in how sleep and dreaming participate in emotion regulation and in memory consolidation processes, with the goal of understanding the potential function of dreaming. Another research domain is the treatment of parasomnias and insomnia disorder as well as the interaction between sleep and neuropsychiatric disorders. Among other aims, the current research projects use sleep and dreaming in order to accelerate treatment for several psychiatric disorders, such as anxiety disorders.
