Our laboratory is located in Paris in the Département d'Etudes Cognitives (DEC) of the Ecole Normale Supérieure.

The aim of research at LSCP is to understand the psychological mechanisms underlying the acquisition and functioning of cognitive functions that are typically human, such as language, social cognition, and consciousness.
The LSCP is organized into six research teams:

  1. Language and its acquisition
  2. Language acquisition across cultures
  3. Cognitive machine learning
  4. Cognitive development and pathology
  5. Brain and Consciousness
  6. Subjective correlates of cognitive mechanisms

Across these teams, we use a common approach that integrates several techniques, in particular cognitive psychology in human infants, children and adults, as well as brain imaging, neuropsychology, and modelling.
