My research focuses on motor control. More specifically, I'm interested in investigating the central mechanisms that maintain the accuracy of our movements throughout life and following various physiological or pathological changes. The two kinds of movements I have specialised in are saccadic eye movements and upper limb movements.


I use a variety of approaches to investigate the adaptation mechanisms allowing to progressively modify our movements to restore a good performance when they are repeatedly inaccurate. Behavioural techniques allow me to understand the basic principles of the adaptation mechanisms. I also use some transcranial non-invasive stimulation such as Trasncranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) to investigate the neural substrates of the adaptation. Finally, I'm interested in assessing the adaptation processes' deficits of various populations of patients suffering from movements disorders (such as Parkinson's disease and cerebellar ataxia) in order to again unravel the neural substrates of adaptation but also to design in the future training protocol that could be used to improve patients' performance.
