Team : PROS (Perception and Recognition of Objects and Scenes)


I am interested in studying changes in visual learning and recognition of natural stimuli throughout aging. These changes may impact daily visual processing of the surrounding environment in elderly people. The following questions are investigated in particular : How are novel environmental stimuli (natural objects or scenes) encoded late in life, and how does visual recognition of these stimuli depend on age of encoding ? Does semantic or emotional processing differ when objects/scenes are encoded early or late during life, and how does this affect recognition performance ? We use color photographs of objects or scenes as ecological stimuli, and methods such as psychophysics and brain imaging with functional MRI, to investigate these different questions.
