Thesis: Contribution of fMRI to study the reorganization of neurofunctional networks underlying the semantic processing of words in the healthy aging population
Description: Our work attempts to explore the determinants of neurofunctional reorganization involved in the maintenance of lexical-semantic processing in the healthy aging population. Strategic processes, the level of production of words and the cognitive profile are studied in connection with the current models of brain reorganization. Using fMRI, the performance in a task of lexical and semantic categorization evocation are analyzed according to age.
