The ALIUS group is very happy to introduce Jean-Rémy Martin, who will be the first research member featured on the website for a month. Jean-Rémy holds a PhD in cognitive science from the Institut Jean Nicod (Paris), and is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Research in Cognition and Neurosciences of the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
His current research focuses on the way social influence affects human cognitive functioning and, more specifically, how it modulates certain aspects of consciousness. To that aim, he is using hypnosis and placebos as laboratory tools. He is also investigating the level of information more 'traditional' types of social influence (e.g., authority, conformity) potentially modulate.
This month, Jean-Rémy will be introducing us to different aspects of his work, including current and future projects.
