PMH_DySCo

Our team is working on complexity in physiology, cognition and movement, with a particular focus on heart-brain interactions via autonomous control of heart rate, embodied cognition and movement control. By combining time-frequency, multifractal and multiscale entropy analyses, we aim to extract relevant markers through the analysis of biosignals emitted by these systems. These markers reflect the complex interactions that are dynamically organised within these systems. They allow us to characterise individual responses to short and long term exposure to various stresses/stimuli associated with cognitive and/or physical tasks.

Detailed presentation of the research activities of the PMH_DYSCO team

The team is interested in the physiological and motor indices that characterise the state, change of state and performance of one or more individuals confronted with physical/mental workloads (cognitive load) applied separately or jointly, in the short/long term (learning, training). These physiological and motor indices are calculated from non-linear analyses of biosignals that result from the dynamics of physiological control systems in humans: cardiac autonomic control, postural control, or cognitive-motor control. Each of these signals is characterised by complex fluctuations that are not similar to white noise, but reflect the coordination of interactions between the components of the system. Entropy and/or multifractality markers reflect the dynamic organisation of these networks, as well as the cognitive architecture that allows for safety, comfort and performance in task performance.

The team welcomes doctoral students (mainly CIFRE theses), and actively participates in training/research schemes which mainly benefit students from the STAPS Faculty from Bachelor to Master level, as well as students from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Cognitique (ENSC), which hosts part of the team’s activity. Its research activities are valued by publications in A-rank journals. They are widely echoed in the transfer to the start-up and SME/SMI fabric of the New Aquitaine region and beyond.

Résumé en français

L’équipe s’intéresse aux indices physiologiques et moteurs qui caractérisent l’état, le changement d’état et la performance d’un/plusieurs individus confronté(s) à des charges de travail physique/mental (charge cognitive) appliquées séparément ou conjointement, à court/long terme (apprentissage, entraînement).

Ces indices physiologiques et moteurs sont calculés à partir d’analyses non linéaires de biosignaux qui résultent de la dynamique des systèmes de contrôle physiologique chez l’Homme : contrôle autonome cardiaque, contrôle postural, ou contrôle cognitivo-moteur. Chacun de ces signaux est caractérisé par des fluctuations complexes qui ne s’apparentent pas à du bruit blanc, mais traduisent la coordination des interactions entre les composants du système. Des marqueurs d’entropie et/ou de multifractalité traduisent l’organisation dynamique de ces réseaux, ainsi que l’architecture cognitive qui permet sécurité, confort et performance dans la réalisation des tâches.

L’équipe accueille des doctorants (thèses CIFRE essentiellement), participe activement à des dispositifs formation/recherche dont profitent principalement les étudiants de la Faculté des STAPS du niveau Licence au niveau Master, ainsi que les étudiants de l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Cognitique (ENSC), laquelle héberge une partie de l’activité de l’équipe. Ses activités de recherche sont valorisés par des publications dans des revues de rang A. Elles trouvent un large écho dans le transfert vers le tissu starts-up, PME/PMI de la Région Nouvelle Aquitaine, et au-delà.
