His research explores brain mechanisms of complex sequence processing, focusing on language syntactic comprehension. He is interested in using Recurrent Neural Networks to model these processes and investigating how such models can be used in developmental robotics.

Xavier Hinaut received an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Technology of Compiègne, France in 2008 and an M.S. in Cognitive Science from the Ecole Pratrique des Hautes Etudes, France in 2009. Since 2009, he is pursuing a PhD in Computational Neuroscience at the INSERM Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute in Lyon, France. He works in the Cortical Networks for Cognitive Interaction team under the supervision of PhD Peter Ford Dominey.
