Celine is a CNRS Researcher and co-directs the SLAM team (Social, Learning, Auditory and Multimodality). She is an expert in multisensory integration processing. She was trained as a neurobiologist at University Paul Sabatier (France) and University of Fribourg (Switzerland, PhD 2007). Her research focuses mainly on multisensory processing using a parallel approach in human and non-human primates and a large panel of methods as anatomy, psychophysics, intracranial electrophysiology and EEG recordings. She also investigates perception in psychiatric diseases.
