Gérard Loquet holds a PhD in Biology and Medical Sciences, a habilitation degree in Neurophysiology and a degree in Toxicology. He has previously worked as a neuroscientist in Collège de France (Paris, France), the University of Fribourg and the University Hospital of Lausanne (Switzerland). He has been implicated in several research projects related to sound perception in animal models, electrophysiology and neuroanatomy of the auditory pathways and electrical neuroimaging in both humans and animals. He has collaborated with the cochlear implant and the hearing aid industries in particular through a European multicentric clinical trial for a new middle ear implant. His present research interests include both low- and high-level auditory processing and mechanisms of multisensory integration for individuals with hearing impairment.
