Alexandre Lehmann’s research focuses on cognitive neuroscience of human auditory processing. He has been investigating brain plasticity and sensorimotor integration, both in the neocortex and subcortex, using electro-encephalography. Some of his topics of interests are selective attention, consonance perception, rhythmic entrainment and consciousness, as wel as performance and rehabilitation in cochlear implant users. In the line with dynamical accounts of cognition and consciousness such as the oscillatory approach set forth by the enactive framework, he seeks to explore the interplay between subcortical and cortical structures.
