General information

The Laboratory of Psychophysiology was founded in 1970 by prof. Konorski who put much attention to study human brain and to make some inferences from the animal data to the human brain function. For many years the main topic investigated in this lab has been hemispheric asymmetry. In our current study we investigate the role of interhemispheric cooperatin in the development of brain lateralisation rather than hemispheric differences per se. The investigation focuses also on neural architecture of memory and prosodic functions as well as on neural basis of some disorders e.g. developmental dyslexia. We are especially interested in the effect of sex and handedness on brain organisation. We use various methods such as tachistoscopic presentation method, investigation of the effects of brain lesions, electrophysiological methods and fMRI.
