François Prévost a obtenu son Ph.D. en neuropsychologie à l’Université de Montréal et a complété sa formation clinique en audiologie à l’Université d’Ottawa. Ses activités de recherche portent sur les processus cognitifs impliqués dans l’analyse de la scène auditive. Ses travaux visent particulièrement les capacités d’attention sélective et de perception de la parole dans le bruit, qu’il étudie au moyen de diverses approches électrophysiologiques (électroencéphalographie, mesures intra-crâniennes). Il s’intéresse également à la plasticité cérébrale observée chez les porteurs d’implants cochléaires. François Prévost est audiologiste au Centre universitaire de santé McGill depuis 2011. Son expertise clinique couvre notamment la réadaptation au moyen d’implants auditifs par conduction osseuse. Il est chargé de cours et instructeur clinique à l’École d’orthophonie et d’audiologie de l’Université de Montréal.

Rushen Shi’s research group focuses on fundamental questions in child language. Their research questions include how infants and young children acquire their linguistic representations, such as the development of phonetic categories, early word recognition, the learning of meaning, and initial acquisition of morpho-syntactic structures. They attempt to understand the mechanisms underlying language acquisition and the interaction between the input and the grammar.

Bruno Gauthier est professeur adjoint au département de psychologie de l’Université de Montréal. Il s’intéresse à l’acquisition du langage et au développement de la perception et de la production de la parole chez l’enfant.

Son programme de recherche vise à mieux comprendre le développement neuropsychologique normal et atypique chez l’enfant et l’adolescent. Il vise plus précisément à :

  • développer et valider des méthodes d’évaluation et d’intervention auprès d’enfants qui présentent des troubles neurodéveloppementaux, incluant les troubles de l’attention, les troubles d’apprentissage (dyslexie, dyscalculie) et le syndrome de Tourette;
  • développer et valider des méthodes d’analyse et d’interprétation de données neuropsychologiques, et
  • modéliser les processus cognitifs par le biais de réseaux de neurones artificiels.

Ingrid Verduyckt is an Assistant Professor at the School of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at l’Université de Montréal. She has a Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology from Lund’s University, Sweden, and a PhD in Psychology and Education from the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium. Her research interests include the pathological mechanisms involved in benign voice disorders. In terms of production, she is interested in the effect of emotions on vocal motor control, and in the link between vocal behavior and speaker personality. On the perceptual level, she is interested in the impact of voice deterioration on the social image conveyed by the speaker.

Miriam Beauchamp, PhD is Assistant Professor in developmental neuropsychology at the University of Montreal (Canada) where she leads the ABCs developmental neuropsychology laboratory (www.abcs.umontreal.ca). She is also a researcher at the Ste-Justine Hospital Research Center and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. Between 2006-2009 she completed CIHR-funded post-doctoral training at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute with Dr. Vicki Anderson. In 2009 she received a Career Development Award from the Quebec Health Resarch Funds (FRQS) for her research program in pediatric traumatic brain injury. In 2015, she was presented with the International Neuropsychological Society Early Career Award in recognition of her work in the area of pediatric traumatic brain injury. The work conducted in her lab focuses globally on cerebral, cognitive and social development from infancy, through childhood and adolescence. Her clinical research program focuses specifically on studying advanced neuroimaging techniques for improving lesion detection after childhood traumatic brain injury and measuring cognitive and social outcomes. The information gleaned from her work informs the development of novel social cognition assessment methods and targeted interventions for children at-risk for cognitive, social or behavioural problems.

Sylvie Nozaradan is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Institute of Neuroscience, UCL, Belgium.  She has a Master’s degree in piano performance and music writing and completed aside her medical doctor degree.   She completed a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, under the co-supervision of Profs. André Mouraux and Isabelle Peretz.  The research axis that she is starting to develop more independently, in the continuity of her PhD work, consists in the development of a novel experimental approach, inspired by the steady-state evoked potential method.

Sarah Lippé, Ph.D., completed a Master’s degree in neuropsychology and a Ph.D. in clinical and research neuropsychology at the University of Montreal. She was trained as a postdoctoral fellow in neuroscience at the Atomic Energy Comission (France) and at the Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care (Toronto). She is researcher at the CHU Sainte-Justine Hospital (FRQ-S junior 1) and assistant professor at the psychology department of the University of Montreal. Her research focuses on brain development and learning in healthy children and infants, as well as factors influencing these processes. Further, she investigates different pathologies and their effects on cerebral, cognitive and affective development, such as benign childhood epilepsy, febrile seizures, leukemia and intellectual disability. The investigation methods in her research lab named “Neuroscience of Early Development lab” include structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging, electrophysiology (EEG/MEG) and behavioural measures (eye tracking, neuropsychological evaluations).
