Her main research interest focuses on the effects of music on cognition and mood on individuals with neuropsychological or mood disorders, as well as with the healthy population. Her studies of adults with brain damages have contributed to the understanding of the brain organization of musical emotions recognition. She has demonstrated the key role of the amygdale in frightening music perception. She also explores the emotional processing across domains, including music, voice and faces. Her postdoctoral researches were on the emotional processes of music, faces and voice by patients with Alzheimer type dementia.
