Arthur Maneuvrier


I hold a Doctorate in cognitive psychology from the University of Caen Normandy and a Ph.D. in cognitive & computational neuroscience from the University of Montreal with a thesis on the psychophysiology and methodology of virtual reality. My research falls within the framework of experimental psychology and its methodology in order to promote rigorous (cognitive and behavioral) science, especially when using the virtual reality paradigm. I am studying the possible applications of the tool, in particular for assessment (executive functions, spatial cognition, etc.) and cognitive and motor rehabilitation (pain reduction, etc.). My future aim is to couple these uses with automatic assessments (machine learning) based on psychophysiological data (eye tracking, etc.). I'm also particularly interested in other more fundamental applications, notably in the fields of philosophies of mind (enactivist / representational cognition), the perception of time (and its alteration) and social behaviour (for example, gaze dynamics).

I am a teaching enthusiast. I have more than 300 hours of teaching experience, from undergraduate psychology to public lectures and master's level student supervision. I also run workshops on virtual reality and research methodology/statistics. Finally, I am qualified by the Conseil National des Universités to be an Associate Professor (Maître de Conférence). I believe that the research/teaching alliance is a powerful dialectical driving force and try to use it as such. I try to put in place combined training in statistics and methodology, in particular through supervised studies that enable students to experience for themselves the benefits, difficulties and limitations of experimental research.

Since the age of ten, when I had to create a website for an online role-playing game, I've been tinkering with computer programmes, particularly video games or narrative/sensory experiences. This is inextricably linked with my research into human-machine interaction and sensory integration. In this context, I have started to develop tools that combine research protocols and spatial computing (3D VR environments). I present a list of these on this site, and they are available on request. I also promote open source, open science and the protection of privacy in new technologies, as well as taking into account their impact on the environment. Click here to learn more.
