Introduction
I am a post-doc working with audition and social cognition. My current project is to understand the cognitive and cerebral functioning associated with the presence of tinntus. I am also working on the mechanisms underlying the positive impact of music on patients with Alzheimer disease

Article
Full-text available
The space immediately surrounding our bodies, i.e., peripersonal space (PPS), is a critical area for the interaction with the external world, be it to deal with imminent threat or to attain objects of interest. In the brain, a dedicated system codes PPS in motor terms for the purpose of action. Yet, humans have asymmetric motor abilities: the domin...
Article
Full-text available
Multisensory integration of stimuli occurring in the area surrounding our bodies gives rise to the functional representation of peripersonal space (PPS). PPS extent is flexible according to the affective context and the target of an action, but little is known about how social context modulates it. We used an audiotactile interaction task to invest...

Background: Humans perceive near space and far space differently. Peripersonal space (PPS), i.e. the space directly surrounding the body, is often studied using paradigms based on auditory-tactile integration. In these paradigms, reaction time (RT) to a tactile stimulus is measured in the presence of a concurrent auditory looming stimulus. New me...

Full-text available
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease impacting cognitive, emotional, and social functioning. Given the limited effectiveness of the pharmacological approach in overcoming these difficulties, the development of nondrug treatment and particularly music-based interventions appear to be an efficient tool to overcome those difficultie...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Music-based interventions appear to be efficient approaches to improve emotional, social, and cognitive functioning of patients with neurodegenerative diseases. Objective: Because benefits seem to increase with patient's motor involvement, we studied sensorimotor synchronization (SMS) abilities of patients with cognitive impairments...
Article
Full-text available
Sensorimotor synchronization (SMS), the coordination of physical actions in time with a rhythmic sequence, is a skill that is necessary not only for keeping the beat when making music, but in a wide variety of interpersonal contexts. Being able to attend to temporal regularities in the environment is a prerequisite for event prediction, which lies...
Article
Full-text available
Although music therapy may engender clinical benefits in patients with neurodegenerative disease, the impacts of social and musical factors of such activities on socio-emotional and motor engagements are poorly understood. To address this issue, non-verbal behaviors of 97 patients with or without major cognitive impairment (CI) were assessed when l...
Article
Given the limited efficacy of pharmacological treatments, the use of musical intervention as a non-drug treatment for patients with Alzheimer's disease is strongly recommended. Musical interventions appear to improve the socio-emotional and cognitive functioning of these patients, and benefits increase when patients' motor skills are engaged. Our st...

Thesis
Full-text available
The space near the body, called peripersonal space (PPS), was originally studied in social psychology and anthropology as an important factor in interpersonal communication. It was later described by neurophysiological studies in monkeys as a space mapped with multisensory neurons. Those neurons discharge only when events are occurring near the bod...
Article
Full-text available
Type IV secretion systems (T4SSs) are multiprotein complexes that transport effector proteins and protein-DNA complexes through bacterial membranes to the extracellular milieu or directly into the cytoplasm of other cells. Many bacteria of the family Xanthomonadaceae, which occupy diverse environmental niches, carry a T4SS with unknown function but...
