  Axes de recherche dans une approche comparative entre primates :

  • Préférences manuelles (manipulation versus communication gestuelle) et latéralisation hémisphérique cérébrale (Imagerie cérébrale IRM, fNIRS)
  • Communication gestuelle et vocale & Cognition sociale : propriétés intentionnelles, référentielles et compréhension de signaux
  • Structure et coordination des unités comportementales (gestes, postures, regard et vocalisations) dans les interactions sociales

Je m’intéresse aux propriétés des modes de communication de nos cousins les primates, et des signaux gestuels en particulier, et leurs liens avec certaines propriétés du langage humain. Je m’interroge notamment sur les implications du geste dans l’évolution du langage, de sa spécialisation hémisphérique cérébrale et de la prédominance des droitiers.

  Lines of research within a comparative approach between primates :

  • Manual preferences (manipulation versus gestural communication) and cerebral hemispheric specialization (Brain Imaging MRI, fNIRS)
  • Gestural & Vocal communication and Social Cognition: Intentional and referential properties, signaling understanding
  • Structure and coordination of behavioral units (gestures, postures, gaze, vocalizations) within social interaction

I'm interested in properties of communicative systems, including gestural communication, in our primates cousins and their links with some properties of human language. I investigate the potential implications of gesture in evolution of language, of its hemispheric brain specialization and of right-handedness predominance.

NEW TEAM MEMBERS

Welcome to Shreejata Gupta (Diya)! Diya is not only an experimented field worker but also a great expert on gestural communication in primates. She notably did her PhD in Bangalore in India on the cognitive properties of communicative gestures in monkeys as well as a postdoc at the University of York in UK with Pr. Katie Solombe on multimodal communication in chimpanzees and the development of empathy in children. She has just been hired as a postdoc with the ERC Gestimage to come work with us on gestural production in humans and its hemipsheric specialization of the brain !                                                                                                                                                                         

Welcome to Siham Bouziane! After a master degree in Neuroscience, Behavior & Cognition in Toulouse Univ and a great research intership in our group, she has just been hired with the ERC Gestimage as research assistant. She will be our lab manager and will keep working with us on baboons' ontogeny of both manual behaviors and hemispheric specialization of the brain. In addition to her great skills in primate ethology, she is a very valuable expert of sulci extraction, sulci parametrization and segmentation of baby baboons brains MRI images !                                                                                                                                                                                  

Welcome to Konstantina Margiotoudi! After a PhD at the Berlin Univ under the supervision of Pr. Friedemann Pulvermüller, she received a FYSSEN fellowship to come working with us and conduct her research on cross-modal correspondance in baboons!
