My main research interest is to understand the mechanisms involved in face recognition by studying normal population and both acquired and developmental prosopagnosia. For that purpose we need to establish tools to evaluate face reocgnition abilities. These tests are destined both for the normal population and for propsopagnosic patients. They should help us understanding better face recognition through a quantitative but also in a qualitative assessment of face processing abilities.
