My research interests are related to the cognitive health of the elderly population. By leading studies on normal and pathological aging, I gained expertise in the field of cognitive stimulation in aging, used as prevention or non-pharmacologic intervention in age-related cognitive decline and dementia. I am specifically interested in the concept of Cognitive reserve and cerebral plasticity, and with the possibility of reinforcing some cognitive processes and brain networks through appropriate training of mnemonic and attentional abilities. I also study the effect of music practice on cerebral plasticity and for its protective effect against aging-related cognitive decline, as well as the effect of other activities such as learning a second language and playing videogames that are specifically designed to train attention and executive functions.

My project addresses the general question of the coordination dynamics across distant cortical areas supporting sensorimotor processes, by taking advantage of a specific context: music. Indeed, one of the most intriguing phenomena related to musical rhythm is that it powerfully compels to move. In turn, body movements shape rhythm perception.

I use functional neuroimaging and representational similarity analysis to investigate the cortical processing/representation of sound sources and events.

I am interested in pitch perception in normal hearing and hearing impaired listeners. I am planning to do psychoacoustical experiments on pitch discrimination and to use fMRI to objectively investigate how resolved and unresolved complex tones are coded in the human auditory cortex.

Is the emotional power of music special? My research focuses on the effect of music on emotional modulation of memory. This project uncover neural processes involved in the brain’s emotional response to music. We also hope to elucidate the similarities and differences in memory for emotional expressions across the visual and auditory senses.
