Cyrille Magne earned a B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology, an M.S. in Neuroscience, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Paul Cézanne University (France). He also completed a two-year post-doctoral research fellowship at the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Magne’s research interests focus on the neural correlates of speech perception, reading acquisition, and the influence of music training on language processing. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. His publications can be found in highly-ranked neuroscience and psychology journals such as Cerebral Cortex, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, NeuroImage, Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Frontiers in Psychology and PLoS One.
