Damien Gabriel

Researcher in cognitive neuroscience at the Neuroscience Laboratory of the University of Franche-Comté and at the Clinical Investigation Centre of the Besançon University Hospital.

Damien Gabriel is also in charge of the Functional Neuroimaging and Neurostimulation platform Neuraxess. Damien Gabriel is developing innovative methods to identify neural markers of integrity of major cognitive functions. To this end, he uses different imaging techniques to accurately measure brain function and works with clinicians, engineers, computer scientists, philosophers… He has developed original multidisciplinary approaches, particularly by combining art and neuroscience through collaborations with artists from Franche-Comté. The result of these collaborations has led to the development of a system guided by thought and allowing to regulate one’s emotional state through artistic activities. The effectiveness of this innovative approach will be evaluated both in schools and in pathological populations.

Sanaâ Belayachi

Sanaâ Belayachi has obtained her PhD in Psychological Science from the University of Liège (Belgium). Previously assistant professor at the University of Geneva, she is a scientific collaborator of the University of Liège and a clinical psychologist specialized in psychosocial rehabilitation.

She examined the complex relationships between action processing and subjective and emotional experiences that may underlie dysfunctional behaviors in psychopathological states. Empirical and theoretical work conducted in collaboration with Professor Martial Van der Linden (Universities of Geneva and Liège) aimed at better characterizing various OCD subtypes, which may be sustained by distinct pathogenic mechanisms, based on cognitive, experiential and emotional features. They subsequently conceptualize a new OCD measure allowing practitioners to better grasp cognitive, emotional and functional characteristics of each OCD patient allowing the use of new therapeutic strategies that are tailor-made. In addition to her research activities, Sanaâ Belayachi is a psychologist helping patients suffering from neurological or psychiatric symptoms to better regulate their daily behaviors and achieve their life goals.
