About Me
My main topic is focused on the effect of motor imagery on motor learning, performance and rehabilitation after peripheral and central injuries.
My research encompasses behavioural and cognitive neuroscience and psychophysiology.
  • Main Research interest: neurophysiology of action and motor learning, cognitive neurosciences, motor imagery, inhibitory mechanisms, cerebral plasticity.
  • Teaching: neuroscience, cerebral plasticity, motor learning, statistics

  • Project on cortical inhibition (competition - resolution) during selection of action.
  • Assessment of corticomotor excitability with transcranial magnetic stimulation.

  • My research projects encompass behavioral psychology and cognitive neuroscience. The main goal is to understand the link between neural processes underlying motion (movement preparation, mental simulation, action language). Ongoing works include the development of non-pharmacological interventions, such as mental practice or non-invasive cognitive stimulation, for motor learning and rehabilitation of pathologies implying the sensorimotor system. To become independent and pursue these projects (materials, recruitment of doctoral and post-doctoral students), I obtained several fundings (local, national and international). Building on my academic background, I have developed a research network involving national and international researchers (Belgium, New Zealand, United States).
