Nicolas Franck completed his medical training in Claude Bernard University (Lyon, France) in 1998. He works as a psychiatrist with Pr. Terra, chair of a department of adult patient in Vinatier psychiatric hospital. He carried out his Ph.D. in Pr. Jeannerod research group (Institute for Cognitive Science). His particular field of interest concerns psychosis, and especially cognitive mechanisms underlying schizophrenic symptoms. He carried out studies about different aspects of action recognition and gaze discrimination in schizophrenia.
