Intérêts de recherche / Research Interest

Je suis neuropsychologue et chercheure clinique, largement intéressée à la cognition autistique. Mon principal objectif de recherche concerne la manière dont les personnes autistes classent les informations et la façon dont ils apprennent (catégorisation), et comment ils font des liens, des analogies et des déductions (raisonnement).
