David Cohen

I received a M.S. in neurosciences from the University Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC) and the Ecole Normale Supérieure in 1987, and a M.D. from Necker School of Medicine in 1992. I specialized in child and adolescent psychiatry and certified in 1993. My first field of research was severe mood disorders in adolescent, topic of his PhD in neurosciences (2002). I am Professor at the UPMC and head of the department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at La Salpêtrière hospital in Paris. I am also member of the labInstitut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotiques - ISIR (CNRS UMR 7222). My group runs research programs in the field of autism spectrum disorder and learning disabilities, childhood onset schizophrenia, catatonia and severe mood disorder. I support a developmental and plastic view of child psychopathology, at the level of both understanding and treatment. My team proposes a multidisciplinary approach and therefore collaborates with molecular biologist, methodologist, experimental psychologist, sociologist and engineer. As a member of ISIR, I am collaborating with several engineers within the team Integration Multimodale, Interaction et Signal Social – IMI2S (see ).
