Welcoming our newest researcher, Dr. Maxime Montembeault

On September 1, 2022, the Douglas Research Centre welcomes its newest member, Dr. Maxime Montembeault. Dr. Montembeault begins his academic career as a Researcher at the Douglas and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University. He previously received a Ph.D. in Neuropsychology at Université de Montréal in 2018, where he investigated Alzheimer’s disease as a disconnection syndrome and its impact on language systems, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Memory & Aging Center, University of California in San Francisco between 2019 and 2022, investigating the interaction between language and socio-emotional behaviour (connected speech, prosody, social cognition, socio-emotional semantics) and their brain correlates in frontotemporal dementia.

At the Douglas, he joins the Aging, Cognition, and Alzheimer’s Disease theme-based group, and his research will focus on using digital cognitive markers and multimodal neuroimaging to investigate linguistic and socio-emotional changes and their brain correlates in aging and neurodegenerative diseases.

Welcome to the Douglas!
