Remapping is used every day to maintain visual stability during eye movements when exploring a visual scene. Despite a large number of studies in the field, some aspects remain largely unknown, especially concerning the neural substrates of the remapping mechanisms. This is particularly relevant for patients with brain lesions, who exhibit a very debilitating deficit in perceiving a visual scene and sometimes are unable to perform eye movements toward the “remapped” object. I propose to investigate these neural substrates of visual remapping with a technique stimulating the brain combined to behavioral tasks, to further increase knowledge in this field and facilitate the development of diagnostic and rehabilitative tools for patients.
