Marine VERNET is a CNRS researcher (CRCN), who recently joined the IMPACT team within the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (Lyon, France). Before that, she was a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Leslie G. Ungerleider at the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition at the National Institute of Mental Heath (Bethesda MD, USA). She also worked at the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at the Harvard Medical School (Boston MA, USA), at the Brain and Spine Institute (Paris, France) and the IRIS Laboratory (Paris, France).
She obtained her PhD from Sorbonne University in 2009 on the neural substrate of binocular coordination with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). During her subsequent post-docs, she used brain stimulation coupled with electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and psychophysics to explore brain plasticity and connectivity in relation to cognitive functions such as motor control, visual perception and attention. In 2019, she joined the CNRS to characterize the neural substrates of consciousness of humans who act, think and perceive.
