Scientific summary

After graduating from the Ecole polytechnique (Maths & Physics), my interests in Cognitives Sciences led me to pursue a doctorate in cognitive psychology, focusing on speech perception in humans. During my postdocs, and early career at the CNRS, I focused on bilingualism and language learning. Because loss in brain plasticity is often invoked as an explanation for the age effect observed on ultimate attainment, I turned to brain imaging, using magnetic resonance (MRI) to study these questions. My current research program tries to assess the format of linguistics representations in the brain.
