Jean Daunizeau

Brain and Spine Institute (ICM), Paris, France

Translational Neuromodelling Unit (TNU), ETH, Zurich, Switzerland.


I am co-heading the Motivation, Brain and Behaviour neuroscience research group at the ICM.

In brief, I study how the brain learns and makes decisions using neuroimaging, behavioural and computational means.

The BRAiN'US project:


You want to help us crowdsourcing neuroscience experiments?

BRAiN’US is a free smartphone app gathering 8 fun tests, which we have designed to decompose the way the brain makes decisions.

You play and we acquire data, which will fuel an ongoing global analysis of human cognitive skills!
