Sylvain Delplanque studied human physiology and psychophysiology at the University of Lille I (Lille, France), completed postgraduate studies in neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience, and received in 2004 a PhD in Cognitive Sciences from the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France). He then joined the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences at the University of Geneva as a postdoc. Sylvain Delplanque is now Scientific Collaborator in the Swiss Centre for Affective Sciences where he coordinates a scientific project EmOdor that results from a partnership between the University of Geneva and Firmenich S.A.
