Research

Brice Marty is a neuroscience PhD, based now in SEFAS  at University of Bergen.

His scientific curriculum began in the Laboratoire de Plasma et Conversion d'Energie (Laplace) in Toulouse (France) by obtaining his Master in Electrical Engineering, with a specialization in Plasma Engineering and Materials for Electronics.

He joined then the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels Belgium, as an teaching assistant and achieved his PhD in Neuroimaging neurosciences in Belgium.

In this research laboratory (Laboratoire de Cartographie Fonctionelle du Cerveau, Erasme Hospital, Brussels, Belgium), he was involved in several studies of the sensorimotor system using the magnetoencephalography technique. More specifically, he studied the neural basis of the coupling between movement kinematics and the cortical neuromagnetic activity.

Later he moved at Bond University (Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia) to participate to the creation of the interdisciplinary centre of artificial mind, and improving his neuroimaging skills with the use of the functionnal infrared spectoscopy.

His main topic are now at SEFAS the Digital Phenotyping, and functional neuroimaging with parkinson disease's patients and elders. 

Teaching

2023-now: Master and PhD student lecturer 
Class: “Introduction to algorithms for health research” Lectures+Tutorials
Medicine Faculty, Universitet i Bergen, Vestland, Norway
The main goal of this class is to provide students without engineering or computer sciences background the basics of algorithmics, scripting and programing, with application to Matlab (a scientific computing framework). The course is designed to empower health researchers of various levels to perform simple tasks related to data analysis in their studies. An important part of the course consists of practical programming applications and exercises.

2021-2022: Undergraduate lecturer 
Class: “PSYC71-305 Research Methods in Psychology” Lectures+Tutorials
School of Psychology, Faculty Society and Design, BOND University,Queensland, Australia
This subject introduces students to the scientific methods of psychological research. It includes an overview of research design and techniques for analysing data. Students learn how to evaluate the strengths and limitations of various research designs and how to critically scrutinise results published in psychological journals.

Honours student supervisor 
Class: “PSYC71-400 Honours Thesis 1” 
School of Psychology, Faculty Society and Design, BOND University 
Assist in facilitating the production of a research project: making suggestions concerning the rationale for the research and hypotheses, discussing the suitability of the research design, and assisting with the ethics application (or any other relevant applications to other institutional ethics committees). This class leads to a literature review, a complete research design plan (research questions, aims, hypothesis, methods etc), the ethical approval of the project and a first draft of the introduction. 

Class: “PSYC72-421 Honours Thesis 2” 
School of Psychology, Faculty Society and Design, BOND University 
Assist in facilitating the data collection, data analysis and writing up the thesis for examination. Advise on the mechanical aspects of data collection and analysis, review, and comment on a draft of the thesis. This class leads to an oral presentation (poster session) and the production of a rapport writing as a scientific paper.

2010-2017: Teaching assistant
Class: “General Physiology and Physiology of Excitable Cells” 
Medicine Faculty, Universite Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium
Bachelor degree’s (second year) Biophysics laboratories supervision,10 sessions of 4 hours

2017-2019: Voluntary teaching assistant
Class: “General Physiology and Physiology of Excitable Cells” 
ULB Medicine Faculty 
Bachelor degree’s (second year) Guidance, tutoring, individual assistance 

2013-2017: Teaching assistant
Class: “Medical Physics”
