Jean-Marc Fellous’ background is in artificial intelligence and automated face recognition. His current interests focus on the use of computational tools and techniques to understand the complex computations of neural networks.

His laboratory uses a combination of experimental (rodent) and theoretical approaches to understand various aspects of high-level information processing and memory at the level of large populations of individually recorded or simulated neurons. The overall goal is to better understand the nature of normal and abnormal neural computations and build better, neutrally inspired algorithms to improve the computers and robots of the future.
