I obtained my PhD in cognitive science and my thesis was entitled “Cognitive assessment of learning and navigation impairments caused by aging : role of memory, executive, and motor control impairments”. My researches focus on spatial cognition, navigation, and the role of the motor control and sensori-motor information on spatial memory, using virtual reality tools. I currently work on navigation strategy and its neuro-anatomical substratum in the monkey, using virtual maze.
