Description of research and teaching

My doctoral work aims at determining neural networks underlying the integration of written and heard syllables in fluent and dyslexic readers by using the EEG method, behavioural measures, and cognitive tests. Furthermore, I'm involved in supervising master thesis projects and teaching cognitive neuroscience and the EEG method.
