Hello! I'm Damien.

 

I am a post-doctoral researcher working in the field of cognitive neuroscience at the Research Institute of Geneva's School of Health Sciences and the Brain and Language Lab in Geneva (FPSE, University of Geneva). I currently work both on dyslexia, and the relationships between musical interventions and aging. Methods of investigation I use are mainly behavioral testing, and anatomical/functional magnetic resonance imaging.

So far the research I conducted firstly seek to understand the anatomy of auditory cortex, its development, inter-individual variability, plasticity, and how that relates to auditory function/dysfunction, in the domains of speech perception, language and music. Main topics that I am working on are: 1- Auditory cortex anatomy and language in humans, but also in monkeys, exploring the evolution of the language system, 2- neuroanatomo-behavioral relationships in dyslexia and mechanisms behind recovery and 3- music, learning and cognitive functions decline.

Recently I have been developing a strong interest in the impact of the extensive use/training of the cognitive control system (e.g. in the case of multilingualism or musicianship) on learning, recovery and aging inter-individual variability.
