El Laboratorio de Neurociencia es un grupo interdisciplinario integrado por físicos, psicólogos, biólogos, ingenieros, científicos de la educación, biotecnólogos, lingüistas, matemáticos, artistas y científicos de la computación.

El grupo tiene amplios intereses en neurociencia y psicología experimental y ha desarrollado numerosas interacciones con representantes de distintos dominios de la cultura humana, incluyendo músicos, jugadores de ajedrez profesionales, docentes de escuelas primarias, matemáticos, magos, artistas visuales y chefs.

Una motivación compartida del grupo es incorporar progresivamente más aspectos fenomenológicos de la mente a terrenos cuantitativos, intentando ser agnósticos e innovativos en las metodologías y frecuentemente fusionando ideas conocidas en combinaciones novedosas.

  • The globalizability of temporal discounting 

    Navajas, Joaquin; et al.; Freiras, Lucía (Nature Human Behaviour, 2022)
    Economic inequality is associated with preferences for smaller, immediate gains over larger, delayed ones. Such temporal discounting may feed into rising global inequality, yet it is unclear whether it is a function of ...
  • Peer tutoring of computer programming increases exploratory behavior in children 

    de la Hera, Diego P.; Zanoni, María B.; Sigman, Mariano; Calero, Cecilia (Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 2022)
    There is growing interest in teaching computer science and programming skills in schools. Here we investigated the efficacy of peer tutoring, which is known to be a useful educational resource in other domains but never ...
  • Bayesian validation of grammar productions for the language of thought 

    Romano, Sergio; Salles, Alejo; Amalric, Marie; Deahene, Stanislas; Sigman, Mariano; Figueira, Santiago (2018-07-10)
    Probabilistic proposals of Language of Thoughts (LoTs) can explain learning across differ- ent domains as statistical inference over a compositionally structured hypothesis space. While frameworks may differ on how a LoT ...
  • Bridging psychology and mathematics : can the brain understand the brain? 

    Sigman, Mariano (2004-09-14)
    We are told scientists are divided into experimentalists and theoreticians. The dialectic description of the dynamics of science, with one tribe gathering data and collecting evidence and another tribe providing form to ...
  • Parsing a cognitive task : a characterization of the mind’s bottleneck 

    Sigman, Mariano; Dehaene, Stanislas (2005-02-08)
    Parsing a mental operation into components, characterizing the parallel or serial nature of this flow, and understanding what each process ultimately contributes to response time are fundamental questions in cognitive ...
  • Dynamics of the central bottleneck : dual-task and task uncertainty 

    Sigman, Mariano; Dehaene, Stanislas (2006-06-27)
    Why is the human brain fundamentally limited when attempting to execute two tasks at the same time or in close succession? Two classical paradigms, psychological refractory period (PRP) and task switching, have independently ...
  • Delays without mistakes : response time and error distributions in dual-task 

    Kamienkowski, Juan Esteban; Sigman, Mariano (2008-09-12)
    Background: When two tasks are presented within a short interval, a delay in the execution of the second task has been systematically observed. Psychological theorizing has argued that while sensory and motor operations ...
