After completing my doctoral studies in 1988 at the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University under the supervision of Dr. Brenda Milner, I accepted an academic position as assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Laval University. I then joined as professor the Department of Psychology and the Research Center at the Geriatric Institute, University of Montreal, in July 2000. At present, I am the Scientific director of the Functional Neuroimaging Unit.
