Music and language were the two domains I investigated as a researcher. I studied the effect of musical expertise and its development on specific sounds processing (e.g. speech, polyphonic sounds, rhythm) and tested the extend of a potential transfer of training from one domain (i.e., music) to another (i.e., language) and vice-versa .
I used psychological and brain imaging methods (e.g., behavioural indices, Electro-encephalography EEG, Event Related Potentials ERPs, Time Frequency analysis) and focused primarily on pitch and rhythm processing in both domains.
Overall, my research interests focus on brain development and brain plasticity. By studying the mechanisms and temporal dynamics of sound processing in infants and adults I started to reach a better understanding of our abilities to learn and develop the brain capacities over time.
