Research group:

VIME: Vieillissement et Mémoire (Aging and Memory)

Research interests:

  • Memory and aging
  • Modulating factors of cognitive aging (eg. cognitive reserve factors such as education, physical activity or executive functioning)
  • Vascular hypothesis of cognitive aging
  • Practice and cognitive training effects in aging
  • Brain mechanisms associated with cognitive aging, especially brain reorganization
  • Methodological approach using both behavioral and neuroimaging methods (event-related potentials, fMRI)


Episodic memory, aging, executive functions, cognitive reserve, vascular, cognitive training, event-related potentials, fMRI.
