Research Interests

I’m a CNRS director of research (PhD, HDR) and work in the CerCo in the DYNAMO team. I study declarative memory in the human using neuropsychological, neuroimaging and electrophysiological approaches. Lately I got interested in various aspects of epilepsy. Some key words that could define my work are: semantic and episodic memory; recognition memory; the visual ventral stream; hippocampus; perirhinal cortex; medial temporal lobes; Alzheimer’s disease; Epilepsy; intracerebral recordings; single-unit recording; tetrodes; high frequency oscillations, etc.  I co-head a Master’s program in Neuropsychology and Clinical Neuroscience (website here).
