Our research is at the intersection of neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and education. We explore the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying functions that are fundamental to human learning and development, such as reasoning and numerical cognition. Our goal is to explore how this knowledge can inform educational practices, and how education research can inform cognitive theories.
The BBL Lab is located in the beautiful city of Lyon, France. We are part of the Marc Jeannerod Institute of Cognitive Science, which is affiliated with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Teachers College (ESPE) of the University of Lyon.
The lab is headed by Dr. Jérôme Prado, who is a cognitive neuroscientist at the CNRS, and by Dr. Marie-Line Gardes, who is a specialist in math education at the University of Lyon.
The lab also includes a manager and several PhD, master and undergraduate students. Meet them by clinking on the link below!
We publish our work in peer-reviewed journals in Psychology, Neuroscience and Education science.

Jérôme just finished up a 3 month fellowship at the UNESCO International Bureau of Education (IBE) in Geneva. The goal was to think about the links between neuroscience and education. More information here and here.
Jérôme is interviewed in Le Monde on the relationship between neuroscience and education. The article (in French) is available here.
