Neural regulation of speed-accuracy tradeoff during human behavior


J. Duque completed her PhD in Neuroscience in 2006 at the UCLouvain (Belgium) under the supervision of Prof. E. Olivier. Her PhD training also included a fellowship (2002-2003) at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NIH, Bethesda, USA) with Prof. L.G. Cohen (PhD co-supervisor). At that time, she characterized interactions occurring between motor areas of both hemispheres using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in healthy subjects and in stroke patients. After her PhD, she joined the lab of Prof. R.B. Ivry (UC Berkeley, USA) as a BAEF and Fulbright postdoctoral scholar, with the goal to further her understanding of the contribution of cognitive processes to the control of voluntary movements (2006-2008). She then continued this research line at the UCLouvain on a FNRS postdoctoral position and worked for a year (2008-2009) with Prof. M. Rushworth (University of Oxford, UK). J. Duque is now associate professor at the UCLouvain where she established her lab in 2010 (Cognition and Actions Lab - https://www.coactionslab.com/) in the Institute of Neurosciences (IoNS), exploring a range of questions pertaining to the cognitive neuroscience of human motor behavior, using a variety of techniques including TMS, electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in neurologically healthy and impaired individuals.
