morgane aubineau
short-term fellow
Postdoctoral researcher and former lecturer in neuroscience and psychology, avid learner and brain passionate. Experienced in the field of neurodevelopmental conditions, from autism to giftedness, in a transdisciplinary approach. I spent the two last years reorienting my methodological approach to investigate brain development, from qualitative research to brain imaging. My objective for the next years is to start up my own research project to examine the neural architecture of individuals with exceptional cognitive abilities (typical or with neurodevelopmental conditions) and its relationship with curiosity.

Examination of mental fatigue in autistic students in high school
This research project aims at elaborating a questionnaire to specifically investigate mental fatigability in autistic students in mainstream secondary education. The project is composed of two main components : 1- a literature review about mental fatigue in general and related to neurodevelopmental conditions and 2- an exploratory study among autistic students.
Comprendre les mécanismes de notre mémoire pour mieux apprendre
L'objectif est de permettre aux élèves de découvrir le fonctionnement de la mémoire, à l'aide de notions fondamentales en neurosciences et d'expériences testées par eux-mêmes, afin de leur permettre de développer des stratégies pour faciliter / structurer leurs apprentissages, comprendre l'intérêt de la répétition, et leur donner confiance en leurs capacités à apprendre et à agir sur leur propre cerveau.
