### Tempo: performances and role in development My main research focus is on our ability to process (perceive, produce and synchronize) tempos (defined as an isochronous sequence of the same event). Tempos have interval duration ranging from 100 ms to 1s. Human beings, early in development, are able to produce tempos without temporal cues and the most common studied task is a spontaneous motor (tapping) tempo task. Spontaneous motor tempo is possibly a behavioral output of the internal tempo on the individual. It is thus specific to each individual and slows down with age. It is also under the hierarchical dependence of the circadian system (it varies during the day) and is modulated by exogenous or endogenous factors. Tempos processing performances are of particular interest because tempos range in the time scale of our actions and especially of our interactions with our physical and social environment. In addition, it relies on a mechanism that allows us to produce synchronized behaviors, meaning they occur at the same time as the target or even slightly in anticipation. If the intervals become longer, approximately 1 to 3 seconds, we are no longer able to do anything other than produce a reaction time response (it is no longer the same process, referring to intervals timing or estimated durations). Another striking point: animals, including great apes, do not demonstrate comparable performances ... nevertheless, birds capable of vocal learning demonstrate similar skills. It is therefore interesting to wonder why humans are able to process tempos so easily, and very early in development (music, rituals, military marches, kicking...). Various studies suggest that this skill of dealing with tempos is involved in the development of other skills, such as language, social development, attention, etc. ... During the first years of life, the infant could support its development on the basis of this skill, and particularly through movement and the vestibular system. Finally, it also appears that certain disorders such as autism and attention disorders. In this context, the research questions that motivate me are: ► How does our capacity to process tempos develop and how does this capacity relate to that of estimated durations? ► What are the factors that modulate this skill? ► What roles does tempos play in development? ► Do movements involving or not the vestibular system modulate the internal tempo and therefore our relation to time? (ongoing project) ► What link is there between rhythms and attentional abilities? (ongoing project) ► Can autistic disorders and attention disorders be linked to impaired tempo processing capabilities? (ongoing project) ► Can we observe in animals spontaneous motor tempo similar as those observed in humans? (ongoing project) ### Perinatality, development and early interactions The quality of early interactions are fundamental to promote child development. The clinical practice of the professionals of the early childhood care raises many research questions. In collaboration with professionals, in particular those of PPUMMA (Mobile Perinatal Emergency Liaison and Intervention Unit), we conduct researches on different questions, with the aim of improving the care of toddlers of mothers in situations of psychological vulnerability, in particular in its interactive dimension. ► Assessment of development of infant in parental center. (ongoing project) ► Infant sleep, parental belief, bedtime routines and the use of a sleep diary. (ongoing project) ► Bayley IV french adaptation process.
