Pascal Gygax is head of the Psycholinguistics and Applied Social Psychology team at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). His work focuses on the way our brain processes the male grammatical mark, and how language creeps into our perception of gender.
Together with his colleagues Sandrine Zufferey and Ute Gabriel, he has just published a public-understanding-of-science book with the Éditions Le Robert, entitled «Le cerveau pense-t-il au masculin? Cerveau, langage et représentations sexistes» [Does the brain think in the masculine? Brain, language and sexists representations].
