Postdoctoral fellow at University of Montréal
Doctoral (Ph.D.) student in Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology option) – Research and Intervention at University of Montreal
I am interested in in the study of language, aging and dementia. My research project focuses on the study of the role of the hippocampus in Alzheimer’s disease and in semantic dementia through a meta-analysis and anatomical images of the shape of the hippocampus.
I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at University of Montreal and am currently a first year PhD student in Clinical Neuropsychology (Ph.D., R/I) under the supervision of Simona Brambati.

I am interested in studying the connectivity between different brain areas that allow optimal cognitive functioning. My research project aims to better understand language disorders present in Alzheimer’s disease and semantic dementia using diffusion tensor imaging.
Renée-Pier Filiou, M.Sc.
Doctoral student (Ph.D.) Research – Neuropsychology and cognitive sciences, University of Montreal.
Under Simona Brambati’s and Nathalie Bier’s supervision, I am interested in the spontaneous language deficits in individuals with dementia of the Alzheimer’s type.
Mariem Boukadi, M.A.
Doctoral student (Ph.D.) Research – Neuropsychology and Cognitive Sciences at Université de Montréal
Broadly speaking, I am interested in the neurobiological bases of normal and pathological language. My doctoral project will focus on early changes in structural connectivity post-stroke and their potential role as biomarkers of language recovery. I am using diffusion MRI, cortical thickness analysis, and neuropsychology’s methods of cognitive and language assessment.
Antoine Slegers, B.A., B.Sc.
Doctoral student (Ph.D.) in Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology option) – Research and Intervention at University of Montreal
I am interested in language in normal and pathological aging. My research focuses on short speech samples that are used to non-invasively determine the risk of developing specific forms of certain neurodegenerative diseases. Our approach is at the intersection of clinical neuropsychology, artificial intelligence and computational linguistics.

Bérengère Houzé, Ph.D.
I obtained my PhD in 2011 in Lyon (France). My duties at LINGUA are mainly to support Simona in writing her grants and articles. I am also involved in the neuroimaging data processing of the language recovery in post-stroke aphasia longitudinal project.
