Audiffren MichelProfessor with the Sport Sciences Faculty at the University of Poitiers (France).  He received his Ph.D. in Sport Sciences, speciality: Cognitive Neurosciences, from the University of Aix-Marseille 2.  His primary research interest focuses on the relation between exercise and cognition and between energetical mechanisms (arousal, effort, activation) and information processing.  He has published in a variety of areas (e.g., Motor control, Information processing, Mental imagery).  From 2000 to 2005, he was the Dean of the Sport Sciences Faculty of the University of Poitiers.
