Brice Bathellier studied Physics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, and soon after decided to move to neuroscience starting to work on computational modeling of neural networks. During his PhD at the Brain and Mind Institute of EPFL (Lausanne), he began to combine theoretical models and in vivo electrophysiological recordings, focusing on information processing and network dynamics in the olfactory bulb. After a postdoc in the Rumpel lab at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (Vienna), where he explored with two-photon calcium imaging the non-linear dynamics of auditory cortex, he established in 2013 his lab at the UNIC CNRS unit, which later joined the Paris Saclay Institute for Neuroscience. He moved in 2020 to the new Hearing Institute, a research center of the Pasteur Institute. His main interests are the principles of auditory perception, multisensory processing and biological learning.
