professeur des universités-praticien hospitalier -CNU : SECTION 4904 - PEDOPSYCHIATRIE
I am professor of child & adolescent psychiatry at the Lille university school of medicine, France, deputy chairman of the CRBSP of Lille (Biomedical and Public Health Research Committee), head of the hallucinations group at the SCA-Lab (Lille University, CNRS UMR-9193), Medical Director of the research platform CURE (Fontan Hospital, CHU Lille, France) and head of the Perinatal Psychiatry Dpt. at the CHU Lille, France.
We recently opened a clinic within the CHU Lille dedicated to children, adolescents and young adults suffering from distressing sensory experiences, including voice-hearing, etc., called CHESS (i.e., Consultation Hallucinations & Expériences Supra-Sensorielles).
My main research interests are in the exploration of the underlying neural mechanisms of hallucinations in children, adolescents and adults. This work currently focuses on hallucinations and delusional beliefs, using behavioral, computational, brain imaging and developmental approaches.
