Research topics

Marianne's research aims at better understanding the neurophysiological mechanisms at the individual level in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), by exploring specifically the cognitive processes involved in the perception of sensory social information, and voices in particular. Marianne uses experimental psychology, eye-tracking, EEG and fMRI to answer her research questions.
