Mes intérêts de recherche couvrent le domaine de la neuropsychologie gériatrique.  Plus particulièrement, je m’intéresse à la prévention, au diagnostic précoce et différentiel des démences neurodégénératives à l’aide de mesures cognitives et comportementales.  Mes recherches touchent aussi aux traitements pharmacologiques et à la stimulation/remédiation cognitive des troubles de la mémoire et de la démence.
