Centre de Recherche en Neurosciences Cognitives
Gregor Schoener obtained a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Stuttgart in Germany in 1985. For the next four years, he applied his background in stochastic dynamical systems to theory on the coordination of biological movement at the Center for Complex Systems in Boca Raton, Florida. From 1989 to 1994, he led a group at the Institut fur Neuroinformatik in Bochum, Germany, in which ideas from dynamical system theory were developed for such diverse fields as perception, movement, cortical neurophysiology, and autonomous robotics. He is now at the Centre de Recherche en Neurosciences Cognitives in Marseille, France, where he pursues an interdisciplinary research agenda in these same fields centered around the theoretical concept of dynamic fields.
