    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 ...
  • 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 T.; 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 ...
