Patrice Voss, PhD

Supervisor: Robert Zatorre
McGill University


Patrice Voss received his PhD degree in psychology in 2009 from the University of Montreal, working under the supervision of Dr Franco Lepore.  He is currently a McGill post-doctoral researcher working with Dr Robert Zatorre at the MNI and BRAMS. Using several brain imaging tools (fMRI, DTI, VBM) and several behavioral variables (sound localization, pitch and melody discrimination), his research aims to identify the functional and anatomical correlates of enhanced auditory and tactile abilities observed in blind individuals, and to better ascertain the specific impact of the age of onset of blindness on both the brain and behavioral adaptations.

Patrice Voss currently holds a Canadian Postdoctoral Banting Fellowship (June 2012-May 2014)
