Uncovering the nature of cognitive dysfunction across contexts: From MRI to EMA
Dr. Katie Lavigne is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and a Researcher at the Douglas Research Centre. She received a PhD in Neuroscience in 2018 from the University of British Columbia for her research on functional brain networks underlying cognitive biases and delusions in schizophrenia. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Neuro and Douglas Research Centre between 2018 and 2023, where she studied multimodal brain-cognition associations in psychosis and digital cognitive health. Her group develops open-source digital tools to improve cognitive assessment and promote cognitive health in transdiagnostic psychiatry. Ultimately, her research is concerned with understanding the cognitive underpinnings of multiscale neuropsychosocial markers in psychiatric disorders.
Cognitive dysfunction is a key characteristic of psychiatric disorders, contributes to symptoms and poor outcomes, and is driven by brain dysconnectivity. Cognitive dysfunction can thus be considered a bridge between brain and behaviour in psychiatric disorders. In this talk, I will discuss research showing how cognition can be leveraged in various contexts – from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to ecological momentary assessment (EMA) – to better understand brain-behaviour associations in severe mental illness.
