Our research interests cover the whole spectrum from low-level vision to complex natural scene understanding. We are particularly interested in colour, motion and three-dimensional perception, attention and visual decisions, and the links between perception and action.
Our research interests focus on modality-unspecific higher-order functions of adult perception and performance. We investigate notably action control, sensation/action reciprocity, consciousness and attention.
Perception and action group
Our research focuses on intermodal and perception-action coupling, such as visual-haptic transfer, visual-postural coupling, or visual-manual coordination. We study the state of these couplings at birth, and their change during development: main questions are how these sensorimotor primitives endow the infant with understanding of the physical word, and what factors underlie the emergence of more elaborate skills.
Speech perception group
Our research focuses on various steps of the acquisition of French, from the emergence of oral language to the acquisition of written language. Our general aim is to understand the interactions between innate predispositions and the linguistic environment that allow the infant to develop complex and culture-dependent structures.
