    Clinical and Neuroscientific Advisor at Seenel Imaging
    Head of the Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology Dept at 
    Amiens Picardy Hospital
    Director of the Multimodal Analysis of Brain Function Research Group, Inserm


    My research focuses on the analysis and maturation of neural networks, be they respiratory or cortical, physiological or pathological, in children and in animals. We have developed tools that make it possible to describe electric (EEG) and metabolic (NIRS) activities. Their modulations in pathological situations, as well as tracking the sources of these cerebral activities in children, and particularly prematurely so, are central to this research. In 2004, we created the GRAMFC, an innovation that allows simultaneous analysis of modifications in electric (High resolution EEG) local hemodynamic (High Resolution NIRS, Optical imaging) cerebral activity, both physiologically (cerebral maturation) and for pathological conditions (anoxic ischemia in premature babies, prenatal neurological suffering, and convulsions/epilepsy in children). With its combination of neuropsychologists, intensive care paediatricians, and signal processing experts, our research unit (EA4293) was recognized both in 2008 by the French Ministry of Research and in 2010 by the Inserm (U 1105).
