I am a CNRS researcher in the NeuroPsychologie Interventionnelle lab (NPI) at the Institut Mondor de Recherche Biomédicale (IMRB, Hôpital Henri Mondor, Créteil - INSERM U955) and Département d'Etudes Cognitives (DEC) of Ecole normale supérieure (Ens, PSL University) in Paris.
I am the head of the Department of Cognitive Sciences (Département d'Etudes Cognitives) and coordinate the EUR Frontiers in Cognition at the Ecole normale supérieure (Ens-PSL).
I am also the referent for equality at the Ens-PSL and member of PSL's Cellule Ecoute et Veille which fights against discrimination and sexual and gender-based violence.
My team "Language and others cognitive functions" focuses on the study of the interaction between language, short-term memory, attention and executive functions.
- Verbal communication
My research is focused on the interactions between speech processing and other cognitive functions such as short-term memory, executive control, decision making…
- Translational research
We develop cognitive tests for the diagnosis, prognosis and medical follow-up of patients. We have recently developed an innovative rehabilitation programme for aphasic patients, based on the theoretical model of language processing. This programme is fully customizable for each patient (personalized medicine).
- Methods and participants
My work is based on neuroimaging studies (MRI, EEG) and computational analysis (Drift Diffusion Model) of neuropsychological data from stroke patients and neurodegenerative patients (Huntington Disease patients).
