Belleville, Sylvie

BELLEVILLE, Sylvie

Professeure titulaire

My research focuses on the study of memory from the viewpoint of cognitive neuropsychology. My work has three main themes: the first examines the effect of focal brain lesions on the components of working memory, in order to better understand its organization. I am also interested in mnesic functioning in other pathologies (e.g. autism, callosotomies). A second theme of my work is characterizing working memory disorders in Alzheimer's-type dementia. In this context I am also interested in mnesic decline in normal elderly subjects. This project will eventually help identify mnesic tasks that can contribute to distinguishing between Alzheimer's-type dementia and normal aging. Lastly, the third theme is the development of tools for evaluating memory and attention that are sensitive and theory-based, for supporting the evaluation work of neuropsychology clinicians.
