ESR5: Cora Caron
Cora obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of the state of Campinas, Brazil. Afterwards, she undertook a one-year internship at the Brain Institute from the Albert Einstein Hospital, where she gained valuable experience on human electrophysiology (EEG) and on data processing. Following this experience, she graduated with a master degree in Cognitive and Behavioral Neurosciences from the University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris (UPMC, Paris 6). In 2019, she worked as an EEG research assistant on language processing at Laboratory of Cognitive Psychology (LPC) from the Aix-Marseille University, France. Her scientific interest on multimodal sensory processing of language motivated her to specialize on speech perception. She is currently working on a PhD in the Comm4CHILD project at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). Her goal is to shed light on the neurophysiology of Cued Speech (CS) perception in hearing impaired children (HI). Specifically, she focuses on the temporal course of the audio-visual integration underlying CS perception in HI fitted with cochlear implants.
Cora Caron works on the research project 5. Temporal course of auditory, labial, and manual signals in Cued Speech perception, supervised by Cécile Colin and Jacqueline Leybaert.
