Knowledge of the anatomical-functional organization of the nervous system (from neurons to neural networks)
Knowledge of anatomical and functional neuroimaging methods (MRI, fMRI, EEG, PET…)
Know how to rely on neuroscientific knowledge to empirically answer questions related to industrial applications
Initiation to the methodological principles of sensory analysis
The class will present the set of methods for measuring sensory perceptions (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch), based on:
Sensory analysis databases: sensory physiology and psychology of perception
Sensory analysis tools: statistics
Sensory analysis methods: discriminative and descriptive techniques, sensory profiling techniques, consumer studies, preference mapping
The complementarity of physiology and neuroscience methods: electrodermal conductance, electrocardiogram, EEG, eye movements.
The practical work aims to give students the responsibility of a small study consisting in generating a sensory profile completed by the collection of data (eyetracking) and the writing of a report.
