Adélaïde de Heering is a faculty member at CRCN. She is interested in the plasticity of the brain, which she examines through the spectrum of typical and atypical development (blindness, deafness). Over the years, she has worked with infants but has also developed a lifespan approach to examine the complexity with which humans make sense of visual and auditory information and combine the two (multisensory integration). More recently she has enlarged the examination of these questions to subjective experience and how early infants benefit of it. To answer these questions, she mainly uses electrophysiological (EEG-SSVEP) and behavioural approaches.
