 Thématique de recherche

[FR]

Mes recherches se situent dans le champ des neurosciences comportementales (i.e., IRM, EEG, EMG) et de la sensorimotricité (i.e., apprentissage et contrôle moteur, lien perception-action, conscience) chez les personnes jeunes et âgées (saines et pathologiques ; e.g., maladie de Parkinson).

Mes thématiques de recherche actuelles portent majoritairement sur le rôle du sommeil dans le processus de consolidation de la mémoire, ainsi que sur les effets d’une privation sensorielle temporaire (i.e., immobilisation d’un membre) sur la plasticité cérébrale et la cohérence cortico-musculaire (couplage oscillatoire entre l’activité corticale et l’activité musculaire).

Outre les enjeux théoriques, ces recherchent trouvent des applications cliniques, avec le développement d’approches thérapeutiques non-invasives (e.g., imagerie motrice) et des protocoles de neuro-réhabilitation (e.g., TMS, tDCS, neurofeedback) afin de faciliter la neuroplasticité et le ré-apprentissage chez des individus ayant été privés de l’usage temporaire d’un membre ou dans le cas de troubles neuropsychiatriques associés à des déficits de plasticité synaptique.

My research falls within the domains of cognitive psychology and behavioral neuroscience (i.e., MRI, EEG, EMG), with topics related to sensorimotor learning (i.e., motor control and learning, perception-action coupling, consciousness) in young healthy adults and in the elderly (healthy and pathological populations such as Parkinson diseases).

My current work mainly focuses on the role of sleep upon memory consolidation, and the effects of temporary sensorimotor deprivation (e.g., limb immobilization) on functional neuroplasticity and corticomuscular coherence (coupling between cortical oscillations from sensorimotor regions and contralateral muscle activity).

In addition to the theoretical challenges, my research has clinical applications, with the development of patient-oriented interventions such as non-invasive therapeutic approaches (e.g., motor imagery) and neuro-rehabilitation protocols (e.g., TMS, tDCS, neurofeedback) in order to facilitate neuroplasticity and (re-)learning in individuals experiencing limb non-use or in populations with neuropsychiatric disorders that are suffering from reduced synaptic efficacy.
