My research is focused on hearing, with a special interest in time: the temporal structure of sound and sound scenes, and the neural bases of their perception.
Current projects include investigations of auditory memory, rapid adaptive plasticity, perceptual bistability in the auditory and visual modalities, music perception, recognition of natural sound sources, computational models of hearing based on spike timing information, comparisons of auditory change detection and visual change blindness, etc...
A list of publications (with pdf files).
This is where I teach: master de sciences cognitives, master Atiam, master IMA.
I am keen to see clinical applications of my work so I did some consulting work for Advanced Bionics. Now I have collaborative projects with the Groupement Entendre.
I co-organised an edition of the International Symposium on Hearing, ISH2003. The book that came out of it, 'Auditory Signal Processing: Physiology, Psychoacoustics and Models', is available from Springer, Amazon or even google books.
My PhD thesis was about roughness perception and musical consonance/dissonance.
