Research Project
– Alzheimer’s disease as a disconnection syndrome: a study of gray matter structural covariance networks
– Characterization of semantic deficits and of their anatomical bases in Alzheimer’s disease and semantic dementia

I completed my BA in Psychology (Honors) at University of Montreal (2008-2011). My honors thesis, which was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Sven Joubert and Dr. Simona Brambati, focused on the structural covariance of gray matter in young and older adults. Following a year as a research assistant at LINGUA (2011-2012) during which I contributed to various projects of the lab, I started my Ph.D in Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology option) – Research and Intervention at University of Montreal in 2012. Under the supervision of the lab director of LINGUA, Dr. Simona Brambati, and of my co-supervisor Dr. Isabelle Rouleau, I am primarily interested in studying language- and semantic-related symptoms as well as the structural connectivity of cerebral networks in typical and atypical dementias.

Marianne Chapleau

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.

Master’s (M.Sc.) student in Psychology at University of Montreal

I was drawn to Dr. Brambati’s areas of research, particularly those pertaining to the functional bases of the temporal lobe. My Master’s project focuses on the role of the right anterior temporal lobe in the semantic recognition of names and faces. Two hypotheses on the differences between the roles of the right and left anterior lobes in the semantic processes are disclosed. Our study in functional neuroimaging (fMRI) tested these 2 hypotheses by associating the activated regions linked to the semantic processes of images and names. The continuous guidance and attention that I receive from Dr. Brambati allow me to progress in my project. Many training and learning opportunities are made available in the lab, which further enrich my knowledge in Neuropsychology.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a DESS in behavioral intervention for individuals in the autism spectrum. I worked with children with autism and applied the techniques of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

Doctoral (Ph.D.) student in Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology option) Research and Intervention at University of Montreal
Co-supervisor: Isabelle Rouleau (Université du Québec à Montréal)

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.

I have always been fascinated by the nebulous aspect of the human brain. This desire to better understand cognitive functioning led me to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at University of Montreal (2012-2015). I am currently starting my doctorate in Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology option) Research and Intervention at University of Montreal under the supervision of Simona Brambati.


Renée-Pier Filiou, M.Sc.

Doctoral student (Ph.D.) Research – Neuropsychology and cognitive sciences, University of Montreal.

Projet de recherche
Spontaneous language deficits in Alzheimer’s disease, MCI and healthy older adults.

I completed a Master’s in Psychology at University of Montreal under the supervision of Franco Lepore and Johaness Frasnelli from the CERNEC. My research project focused on how the trigemenal system processes blended smells. I am now starting a doctorate in research under Simona Brambati’s supervision at the CRIUGM, and 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.
