Research questions :
My research work aims at examining the interactions between working memory and language. More specifically, I assess the influence of linguistic knowledge on working memory at different levels of processing, such as serial order processing or temporary activation within the language system. Recently, I became interested in understand how linguisic knowledge allows the compression of information in working memory.

  • In order to examine these research questions, I use behavioural and functional neuroimaging (MRI) research methods.
  • I also started to investigate these questions using computational modeling techniques.
