Thesis Project (2012-2016): Bilingualism & Math Cognition
Title: “Number representation in blinguals. The role of early learning in the mental number line representation”
Abstract: My thesis dissertation is focused on the study of bilingual mathematics from a Numerical Cognition framework. It adressed the question of how bilingual people represent and access magnitude. This topic is currently a matter of growing interest that responds to the need to understand the role that language plays in the early acquisition of mathematics. This importance is usually reflected in the context of education, where learning arithmetic and bilingualism come together naturally. Given the importance in our society of both, math competence and early learning of a second language, research from a Cognitive Neuroscience perspective is necessary to better understand the bilingual brain.
Several published researh activities on Visual Word Recognition and handwritting perception based on masked repetition priming paradigm.
Postdoctoral Research UGA: Spatial cognition & Brain stimulation
Title: “Regulation of self-motion illusions induced by the modulation of alpha oscillations on sensorimotor and vestibular cortical networks”
Background: This project entails the study of the effects of transcraneal electric stimulation (tACS) during the experience of visually induced self-movement illusion.
Research Collaboration UGA: EEG-ERPs & Affective Neuroscience
Title: Neural signatures of the influence of posture on the emotional response.
Background: I collaborated with the emotion research team of the University of Grenoble Alps in an ongoing project investigating the influence of body posture on emotional processing during an action tendency task based on electroencephalography signatures.
