My clinical practice and research topics focus on neurorehabilitation of brain-injured patients from the acute phase to the chronic phase. I work on the assessment and rehabilitation of cognitive , language and communication impairments. More particularly, I study the impact of cognitive rehabilitation on independence in activities of daily living assessed in real life or virtual domain using emerging technologies. This led me to create and to lead since 2007 this team. The uniqueness of the EA4136 team is the fact it brings together researchers from rehabilitation sciences, human and social sciences (neuropsychologists), sport sciences, health sciences : hospital university practitioners and para-medical staff (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists), in line with the universitarisation of the paramedical training.
