How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

My PhD work investigates the multisensory integration mechanisms in motion perception in both rats and humans, using single-unit electrophysiology & voltage sensitive dye imaging and fMRI, respectively. I am greatly interested in answering scientific questions transversally, across species and across scales of processing using several techniques. I am also fascinated by the evolutionary origins and developments of cognitive processes, especially communication, in Primates.

Background Studying brain processes underlying tactile perception induced by natural-like stimulation is challenging yet crucial to closely match real-world situations. New Method We developed a computer-controlled pneumatic device that allows the delivery of complex airflow patterns on subject’s body, through a MR-compatible system fixed on an in...
Motion perception is facilitated by the interplay of various sensory channels. In rodents, the cortical areas involved in multisensory motion coding remain to be identified. Using voltage-sensitive-dye imaging, we revealed a visuo-tactile convergent region that anatomically corresponds to the associative parietal cortex (APC). Single unit responses...
Any sensory stimulus evokes a propagating wave of activity in the corresponding sensory cortex that exceeds its topographical boundaries within the primary sensory map. Hama and colleagues provided a first study, in the tactile modality, of the interactions between two successively evoked waves. We argue that the difficulty in finding a simple rule...
