About The Author

I'm professor of psychology and cognitive neuroscience at Reims Champagne-Ardenne University. I currently work in the field of cognitive neuroscience using behavioural, neuroimaging and brain stimulation methods. My major research theme is the cognitive neuroscience of voluntary action. I have published papers on the topics of decision-making, intentions, unconsciouss determinants of willed actions, theory of mind and consciousness.
My training was in psychology at René Descartes University of Paris (DESS), and cognitive science (DEA) at EHESS/ENS/Polytechnique/Pierre et Marie Curie University. I did my Ph.D. (2000-2003) with Dr. Angela Sirigu, at the Center of Cognitive Neuroscience in Lyon, on the neural underpinnings of the sense of effort in normal and in various pathological conditions.
