  • Evolution of severe sleep-wake cycle disturbances following traumatic brain injury: a case study in both acute and subacute phases post-injury 

    Duclos, Catherine; Dumont, Marie; Potvin, Marie-Julie; Desautels, Alex; Gilbert, Danielle; Menon, David K.; Bernard, Francis; Gosselin, Nadia (BMC, 2016)
    Background. Sleep-wake disturbances are frequently reported following traumatic brain injury (TBI), but they remain poorly documented in the acute stage of injury. Little is known about their origin and evolution. Case presentation. This study presents ...
  • Sleep and wake disturbances following traumatic brain injury 

    Duclos, Catherine; Dumont, Marie; Wiseman-Hakes, Catherine; Arbour, Caroline; Mongrain, Valérie; Gaudreault, Pierre-Olivier; Khoury, Samar; Lavigne, Gilles; Desautels, Alex; Gosselin, Nadia (Elsevier, 2014-10)
    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major health concern in industrialised countries. Sleep and wake disturbances are among the most persistent and disabling sequelae after TBI. Yet, despite the widespread complaints of post-TBI sleep and wake disturbances, ...
  • Sleep in the acute phase of severe traumatic brain injury : a snapshot of polysomnography 

    Sleep and traumatic brain injury
    Wiseman-Hakes, Catherine; Duclos, Catherine; Blais, Hélène; Dumont, Marie; Bernard, Francis; Desautels, Alex; Menon, David K.; Gilbert, Danielle; Carrier, Julie; Gosselin, Nadia (SAGE, 2015-12-23)
    Background and Objectives. The onset of pervasive sleep-wake disturbances associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is poorly understood. This study aimed to (a) determine the feasibility of using polysomnography in patients in the acute, hospitalized ...
  • Test-retest reliability of diffusion measures extracted along white matter language fiber bundles using HARDI-based tractography 

    Boukadi, Mariem; Marcotte, Karine; Bedetti, Christophe; Houde, Jean-Christophe; Desautels, Alex; Deslauriers-Gauthier, Samuel; Chapleau, Marianne; Boré, Arnaud; Descoteaux, Maxime; Brambati, Simona Maria (Frontiers media, 2019-01-14)
    High angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI)-based tractography has been increasingly used in longitudinal studies on white matter macro- and micro-structural changes in the language network during language acquisition and in language impairments. ...
  • Visual fixation in the intensive care unit: a strong predictor of post-traumatic amnesia and long-term recovery after moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury 

    Visual fixation in the ICU
    Arbour, Caroline; Baril, Andrée-Ann; Westwick, Harrison J.; Potvin, Marie-Julie; Gilbert, Danielle; Giguère, Jean-François; Lavigne, Gilles; Desautels, Alex; Bernard, Francis; Laureys, Steven; Gosselin, Nadia (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2016-12-01)
    Objective: We examined whether visual fixation at 24h of intensive care unit (ICU) admission is superior to the initial Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score to predict PTA duration and long-term TBI recovery. Design: Two-phase cohort study. Setting: Level I ...
