Léa Pillette

IRISA (France)

Léa Pillette is a researcher in the Hybrid team of IRISA (France) since November 2022. Most of her research focuses on investigating how humans can learn to control their brain activity either to control external devices in brain-computer Interfaces application or to improve cognitive abilities in the context of neurofeedback. It this context she has studied the usability, efficiency and acceptability of different types of neurofeedback. For instance, she created the first learning companion dedicated to the improvement of neurofeedback training. Her current research is at the intersection of mixed realities and brain-computer interfaces. She is also involved in the bureau of the French BCI association, where she is notably in charge of communicating with the media.
