  • Biomarkers of dementia in obstructive sleep apnea 

    Baril, Andrée-Ann; Carrier, Julie; Lafrenière, Alexandre; Warby, Simon; Poirier, Judes; Osorio, Ricardo S.; Ayas, Najib; Dubé, Marie-Pierre; Petit, Dominique; Gosselin, Nadia; Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network (Elsevier, 2018-08-13)
    Epidemiologic and mechanistic evidence is increasingly supporting the notion that obstructive sleep apnea is a risk factor for dementia. Hence, the identification of patients at risk of cognitive decline due to obstructive sleep apnea may significantly ...
  • Connected speech features from picture description in Alzheimer's disease: a systematic review 

    Slegers, Antoine; Filiou, Renée-Pier; Montembeault, Maxime; Brambati, Simona Maria (IOS Press, 2018-08-21)
    The language changes that occur over the course of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can impact communication abilities and have profound functional consequences. Picture description tasks can be used to approximate everyday communication abilities of AD patients. ...
  • The impact of time and repeated exposure on famous person knowledge in amnestic Mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease 

    Benoit, Sophie; Rouleau, Isabelle; Langlois, Roxane; Dostie, Valérie; Kergoat, Marie-Jeanne; Joubert, Sven (2017)
    Objective: Famous people knowledge has been shown to be impaired early in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI). However, the question of whether recently acquired knowledge is more impaired than remotely acquired ...
  • Memory for public events in mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease : the importance of rehearsal 

    Langlois, Roxane; Joubert, Sven; Benoit, Sophie; Dostie, Valérie; Rouleau, Isabelle (2016-02-22)
    Ribot’s law refers to the better preservation of remote memories compared with recent ones that presumably characterizes retrograde amnesia. Even if Ribot-type temporal gradient has been extensively studied in retrograde amnesia, particularly in ...
  • A qualitative impairment in face perception in Alzheimer’s disease : evidence from a reduced face inversion effect 

    face inversion effect in Alzheimer’s disease
    Lavallée, Marie Maxime; Gandini, Delphine; Rouleau, Isabelle; Vallet, Guillaume; Joannette, Maude; Kergoat, Marie-Jeanne; Busigny, Thomas; Rossion, Bruno; Joubert, Sven (2016-04-12)
    Prevalent face recognition difficulties in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have typically been attributed to the underlying episodic and semantic memory impairment. The aim of the current study was to determine if AD patients are also impaired at the perceptual ...
  • The role of the left anterior temporal lobe for unpredictable and complex mappings in word reading 

    Joyal, Marilyne; Brambati, Simona Maria; Laforce, Robert Jr.; Montembeault, Maxime; Boukadi, Mariem; Rouleau, Isabelle; Macoir, Joël; Joubert, Sven; Fecteau, Shirley; Wilson, Maximiliano A. (Frontiers media, 2017-04)
    The anterior temporal lobes (ATLs) have been consistently associated with semantic processing which, in turn, has a key role in reading aloud single words. This study aimed to investigate (1) the reading abilities in patients with the semantic variant ...
  • Subcortical amyloid load is associated with shape and volume in cognitively normal individuals 

    Subcortical Aβ associates to morphometry
    Rahayel, Shady; Bocti, Christian; Sévigny Dupont, Pénélope; Joannette, Maude; Lavallée, Marie Maxime; Nikelski, Jim; Chertkow, Howard; Joubert, Sven (Wiley, 2019-05-21)
    Amyloid-beta (Aβ) deposition is one of the main hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease. The study assessed the associations between cortical and subcortical 11C-Pittsburgh Compound B retention, namely in the hippocampus, amygdala, putamen, caudate, pallidum, ...
