Louis Renoult, PhD

Research Focus

My general interest is in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience of memory and more precisely in the characterization of the similarities, differences, and interactions between the semantic and episodic systems. The goal of my Ph.D. research consisted in trying to understand whether we process the meaning of words similarly when they are repeated or presented for the first time in an experiment. Current projects consist in extending this research to the knowledge we have about ourselves, sometimes referred to as personal semantic memory. This entails knowing about one’s past as well as about one’s personality traits. These aspects of autobiographical memory have been much less studied than episodic memory processes. The goal of this work is thus to understand if personal semantic memory is a homogeneous and distinct declarative memory system or if this type of knowledge emerges from interactions between the semantic, episodic and self-reference systems.
