Dr Joubert obtained his PhD in neuropsychology at Université de Montréal under the supervision of Dr. André Roch Lecours. He then completed his postdoctoral fellowship with Pr. Michel Poncet, in the Neurology and Neuropsychology Unit at the Timone Hospital and in the Laboratoire de Neurophysiologie et de Neuropsychologie de l’Équipe INSERM EMI 9926 (Marseille, France). He is currently investigator at the CRIUGM and full professor in the Department of Psychology at Université de Montréal. He is also a registered member of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec (Quebec Board of Psychologists).
My research program is aimed at better understanding the nature of cognitive decline in different neurodegenerative diseases of the brain, as well as the brain changes that are associated with this decline. I have a specific expertise in Alzheimer’s disease and atypical forms of dementia (primary progressive aphasias, posterior cortical atrophy, frontotemporal dementia). I am also interested in cognitive decline in individuals with Mild cognitive impairment (MCI). I also have a particular interest in cognitive changes in normal aging and how they are modulated beta-amyloid burden, vascular burden, and cognitive reserve.
More specifically, here are some of my research topics :
