Functions

Lecturer in Language Sciences

List of courses

-Psycholinguistics (L2 and M1 in Language Sciences, M2 of Neuropsychology and clinical neuroscience, Toulouse) -Neurolinguistics and written language disorders (M1 in Language Sciences) -Methods in linguistics (L1 in LS) -Development and Origin of Language (L1 in LS) -Morphology (L2 in LS). -Introduction to morphology, syntax and semantics (1st year of language and speech therapy institute)

Subject of research

My theoretical and methodological background comes from psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics and neuropsychology of language.

My favorite research topics are:

Written language learning disorders (developmental dyslexia): phonemic awareness and visual attention span disorders, dyslexia remediation, procedural learning and memory in dyslexia and developmental coordination disorders.

Shared and specific processes in written versus oral language production.

Memory and language deficits in neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's disease, primary progressive aphasia).

Methods used: expérimental psycholinguistics, corpus analysis, neuroimaging (EEG, fMRI).

Supervision

Together with Pr. J. Pariente, I supervise the doctoral thesis of Aurélie Pistono.
I regularly supervise the research work of Master student in Language Sciences and neuropsychology and clinical neuroscience.
I've also closely worked with Caroline Reilhac (a former PhD student at Inserm U825 and LPNC, Grenoble) et Samuel Planton (a former student of Octogone-Lordat and Inserm U825, now a postdoc in Aix-Marseille, LPL).
