Introduction
My principal research interests concern the exploration of the cognitive mechanisms underlying musical short-term-memory as well as as cross-domain comparison of the processes involved in both musical and verbal short-term memory.

Article
Full-text available
Recent studies suggest that the mechanisms involved in the short-term retention of serial order information may be shared across short-term memory (STM) domains such as verbal and visuospatial STM. Given the intrinsic sequential organization of musical material, the study of STM for musical information may be particularly informative about serial o...
Article
Full-text available
In the field of verbal short-term memory (STM), numerous theoretical models have been proposed to explain how serial order information is processed and represented. Evidence suggests that serial order is represented through associations between items and a varying contextual signal coding the position of each item in a sequence, but the nature of t...
Article
Verbal working memory (WM) has been assumed to involve 2 different systems of maintenance, a phonological loop and a central attentional system. Though the capacity estimate for letters of each of these systems is about 4, the maximum number of letters that individuals are able to immediately recall, a measure known as simple span, is not about 8 b...
Article
Full-text available
The question of the domain-general versus domain-specific nature of the serial order mechanisms involved in short-term memory is currently under debate. The present study aimed at addressing this question through the study of temporal grouping effects in short-term memory tasks with musical material, a domain which has received little interest so f...
Article
Long-term memory knowledge is considered to impact short-term maintenance of item information in working memory, as opposed to short-term maintenance of serial order information. Evidence supporting an impact of semantic knowledge on serial order maintenance remains weak. In the present study, we demonstrate that semantic knowledge can impact the p...

Mobile language learning applications are a pervasive facet of modern life, however there is a dearth of evidence for their effectiveness on L2 learning outcomes. In the current work, we sought to determine the effect of mobile language learning applications on L2 proficiency between groups who used mobile language learning applications and control...

Article
Full-text available
This study explored the validity of an integrative framework for verbal and musical short-term memory (STM). Following this framework, access to domain-specific long-term knowledge bases supports the processing of musical and verbal item information in STM, while domain-general ordering processes support the representation of serial order informati...
Article
Full-text available
Recent theoretical accounts of verbal and visuo-spatial short-term memory (STM) have proposed the existence of domain-general mechanisms for the maintenance of serial order information. These accounts are based on the observation of similar behavioural effects across several modalities, such as temporal grouping effects. Across two experiments, the...
Article
Full-text available
Several models in the verbal domain of short-term memory (STM) consider a dissociation between item and order processing. This view is supported by data demonstrating that different types of time-based interference have a greater effect on memory for the order of to-be-remembered items than on memory for the items themselves. The present study inve...
Data
Recognition accuracy data for Experiment 1. The row in yellow corresponds to the participant with outlier recognition performance, as described in the manuscript (VNI = verbal no-interference item; VAI = verbal articulatory suppression item; VRI = verbal rhythmic interference item; VNO = verbal no-interference order; VAO = verbal articulatory suppr...
Data
Response latency data for Experiment 1. The rows in orange correspond to the participants with outlier RL and the row in yellow corresponds to the participant with outlier recognition accuracy, as described in the manuscript (VNI = verbal no-interference item; VAI = verbal articulatory suppression item; VRI = verbal rhythmic interference item; VNO...
Data
Recognition accuracy data for Experiment 2. The row in yellow corresponds to the participant with outlier recognition accuracy, as described in the manuscript (VNI = verbal no-interference item; VRI = verbal rhythmic interference item; VNO = verbal no-interference order; VRO = verbal rhythmic interference order; MNI = musical no-interference item;...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the domain of verbal short-term memory (STM), many models consider a dissociation between item and serial order processing (e.g., Burgess & Hitch, 2006; Majerus, 2013). This is supported by data showing that serial order processing is significantly more impaired by rhythm production interfering tasks than is item processing (Henson et al., 2003)...

This project aims at explore the cognitive organization underlying short-term memory for musical stimuli. In the light of recent theoretical models of verbal short-term memory, we are exploring the commonalities and differences that exist between musical and verbal short-term memory systems. More generally, this project is also an attempt in briding the two memory systems into a more general framework where domain-specific representations interact with domain-general processes in order to give rise to short-term memory.
