The goal of my doctoral research is to better understand the functioning of verbal short-term memory, in collaboration with Steve Majerus and Martine Poncelet (section Cognition & Language). My aim is to develop a fine-grained measure of the precision with which verbal representations are stored in short-term memory.

  • From a behavioural perspective, I investigate short-term memory precision by studying the effect of phonological and semantic similarity on the representations held in memory. To achieve this, I explore the effect of phonological and semantic similarity in trilingual subjects by presenting stimuli in their mother tongue, but also in their second and third language.
  • From a functional neuroimaging perspective, I study the neural underpinnings of short-term memory precision by investigating the differences between memoranda linked to concepts phonologically or semantically close versus distant.
