Biography

Arnaud Boujut is a postdoctoral fellow in neuropsychology at the University of Montréal under the supervision of Professor Sylvie Belleville, Ph.D., at CRIUGM. After undergraduate studies in psychology at the University of Poitiers (France), he did a PhD in cognitive science at the same university under the supervision of Prof. David Clarys, Ph.D., where he studied the evolution of states of consciousness in memory in aging. In September 2017, he joined Sylvie Belleville's laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow.

Research Program

His research interests focus on preventing cognitive decline in aging. Since 2017, He studies at CRIUGM the effect of cognitive training on working memory in the elderly. His research, that he leads under the supervision of Dr. Sylvie Belleville, Ph.D., focuses on the control of attention in cognitive tasks. This ability tends to decline in aging and would underly a broad spectrum of cognitive deficits. For instance, during his Ph.D., he had the opportunity to precisely examine the relationship between the age-related deficit in working memory updating and the deficit in encoding new memories. He now uses virtual reality to study human cognition in contexts close to everyday life and to train directly transferable skills in real life situations.
