Émilie Salvia (PhD)

Émilie Salvia is an Associate Professor in developmental cognitive neuroscience at Paris Descartes University. Her PhD, obtained in 2012 at Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University, tested the influence of emotion on decision-making processes. Then, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology (Glasgow University) on the cerebral bases underlying the ability of humans’ listeners to perceive emotions in voice. From 2014 to 2016, she moved as a postdoctoral fellow at the Cognitive Neuroscience lab (Aix-Marseille University) and worked on the influence of social perception (i.e. faces) on action control (i.e. inhibition) and its evolution during the development. Her work is now conducted in the field of cognitive neuroscience of education (ii) to better understand the neurodevelopmental bases of cognitive control (particularly inhibitory control) in school age children and adolescents; (ii) to study the degree of specificity of inhibitory control during the development and (iii) to test the role of emotions on decision-making and academic learning, especially to study the role of anticipation of regret on the ability to detect and solve a cognitive conflict during the development.
