The MSc Mod4NeuCog is part of the NeuroMod Institute, the first interdiscplinary Institute devoted to modeling in neuroscience and cognition. It groups more then 250 researchers in France and abroad, and has strong ties with 16 different laboratories and research entities at Université Côte d'Azur. This directly leads the students to a large network of actors in their possible fields of interest.

IBV 
The Institute of Biology Valrose (iBV) in Nice is an international research center funded by the CNRS, INSERM, University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, Regional Cancer Research Center and EU. The focus of the Institute is to understand the basic principles governing the development of normal cells, tissues and embryos and those leading to pathogenesis and cancer. We bring together research teams with complementary areas of expertise and a common interest in translating basic research into knowledge applied in the hospital. Some of the IBV members are more particularly specialized in the cortical development.

LP2M 
The projects of the Laboratory of Molecular PhysioMedecine focus on renal, vascular, muscular, neurosensory and bone physiology as well as inflammation and cancer. The LP2M studies the mechanisms of oxidative stress and its protection, the causes and effects of inflammation, the regulation of intracellular pH and the regulation of membrane potential. One of the main research topics of the LP2M is the study of membrane potentials. The laboratory also specializes in neurosensory physiology.

Cognition

BCL 
The Laboratory of Linguistics and Psycholinguistics is under the dual supervision of the CNRS and the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, and has close to one hundred members: researchers, faculty researchers, associates, engineers, technicians, doctoral fellows and administrative staff. The field of study of BCL is language, from its cognitive architecture to its most concrete discursive or textual practices. It conducts multidisciplinary studies specific to cognitive sciences, at the crossroads of linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Language and its characteristics are the basis for studying its functioning but also for studying the memory system and probabilistic processes of anticipation and prediction, fundamental to understanding and modeling the functioning of the neurocognitive system.
