ARAMIS is a joint research team between CNRS, Inria, Inserm and UPMC (University Pierre et Marie Curie) within the Brain and Spine Institute (ICM). The ICM is a recently created neuroscience center based in the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris, which is the largest adult hospital in Europe and has a long tradition of neuroscience and neurology.

ARAMIS is a pluridisciplinary group bringing together methodological researchers (image/signal processing, computer science) and medical experts (neurology, medical imaging). The team has close and enduring collaborations with different clinical teams of the ICM and the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital.

The general objective of the team is to design new approaches for the analysis of neuroimaging and electrophysiological data. These approaches are applied to the study of brain pathologies.


Main research themes:

  1. Modeling brain structure from anatomical and diffusion MRI
  2. Modeling dynamical brain networks from EEG/MEG
  3. Integrating multimodal data (neuroimaging, genomics, clinical data)


Key methodological domains:

  • morphometry, statistical shape analysis, diffeomorphic registration
  • image segmentation
  • complex networks theory
  • graph analysis
  • machine learning
  • longitudinal models
  • multi-site MRI harmonization, quality control and analysis
  • ultra-high field MRI (7 Tesla MRI)


Main applications :

  • Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative dementias
  • Epilepsy
  • Brain computer interfaces
  • Deep brain stimulation
  • Other neurological and psychiatric disorders: coma, cerebrovascular disorders, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, depression, Parkinson’s disease…
