Neurofunctional Imaging Group (GIN)

Published on 21 October 2015


The Neurofunctional Imaging Group (GIN) is a unit integred in the I²BM. Driven by three scientists, namely Nathalie Tzourio-MazoyerBernard Mazoyer, its Director, and Marc Joliot, this unit became a pioneer in France in the development of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and its use for investigating the neural bases of cognition.

The GIN is a multidisciplinary research unit gathering scientists with initial training in various domains, namely mathematics and instrumentation for medical imaging (B Mazoyer), nuclear medicine and neurosciences (N Tzourio-Mazoyer), signal processing (F Crivello, M Joliot), psychiatry (E Mellet) and cognitive neurosciences (G Jobard, L Petit, L Zago).

The project is based on a collective expertise acquired over 20 years of work in the domain of cognitive neuroimaging. The GIN possesses know-how for all functional imaging techniques (PET, MRI, EEG, MEG), from the design of experiments to data analysis.

The GIN is a core member of the TRAIL Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx), and is an associated team of the BRAIN LabEx as well. The GIN is also and involved in the i-SHARE cohort of excellence.
