    Gorno-Tempini, Maria Luisa; Ogar, Jennifer M.; Brambati, Simona Maria; Wang, P.; Jeong, Je Hoon; Rankin, Katherine P.; Dronkers, Nina; Miller, Bruce L. (American Academy of Neurology, 2006)
    Patients with progressive nonfluent aphasia (PNFA) can become mute early in the course of the disease. Voxel-based morphometry showed that PNFA is associated with left anterior insula and inferior frontal atrophy. In PNFA with early mutism, volume ...
  • The anatomy of category-specific object naming in neurodegenerative diseases 

    Brambati, Simona Maria; Myers, D.; Wilson, A.; Rankin, Katherine P.; Allison, Stephen C.; Rosen, Howard J.; Miller, Bruce L.; Gorno-Tempini, Maria Luisa (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, 2006)
    Neuropsychological studies suggest that knowledge about living and nonliving objects is processed in separate brain regions. However, lesion and functional neuroimaging studies have implicated different areas. To address this issue, we used voxel-based ...

    Aerts, Leen; Bergeron, Sophie; Corsini-Munt, Serena; Steben, Marc; Pâquet, Myriam (2015-06-01)
    Introduction Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is suspected to be the most frequent cause of vulvodynia in premenopausal women. Based on the onset of PVD relative to the start of sexual experience, PVD can be divided into primary (PVD1) and secondary ...
  • Assessment and treatment of vocal stereotypy associated with television: a pilot study 

    Lanovaz, Marc; Rapp, John T.; Ferguson, Stéphanie (Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior & Wiley, 2013)
    A 6-year-old boy diagnosed with autism participated in a pilot study showing that (a) television was associated with increased vocal stereotypy and (b) sitting was associated with lower levels of vocal stereotypy. Subsequently, we reduced vocal ...
  • Association between waking electroencephalography and cognitive event-related potentials in patients with obstructive sleep apnea 

    EEG and ERP in OSA
    Baril, Andrée-Ann; Gagnon, Katia; Gagnon, Jean-François; Montplaisir, Jacques-Yves; Gosselin, Nadia (Elsevier, 2013)
    Objective: Abnormal event-related potentials (ERP) and slowing of the waking electroencephalographic (EEG) activity have been reported in patients with obstructive sleep apneas (OSA). This study aimed at evaluating whether an association exists between ...
  • Associations between early maternal sensitivity and children's sleep throughout early childhood 

    Tétreault, Émilie; Bouvette‐Turcot, Andrée‐Anne; Bernier, Annie; Bailey, Heidi N. (2017-09-02)
    Despite strong theoretical reasons to believe that the quality of parent-infant interactions should influence child sleep, the empirical evidence for links between maternal behavior and children’s sleep is equivocal. Notably, it is unclear at which ...
  • Associations between sleep consolidation in infancy and peer relationships in middle childhood 

    Sleep and peer relationships
    Larose‐Grégoire, Élodie; Bernier, Annie; Dirks, Melanie; Perrier, Rachel (Wiley, 2017-11-21)
    Sleep plays an important role in many aspects of children’s development. Research on children’s sleep and their peer relationships has begun to emerge in the last years. However, these studies are mostly cross-sectional. The current study aimed to ...
  • Atrophy, metabolism and cognition in posterior cortical atrophy spectrum based on AD CSF biomarkers 

    Montembeault, Maxime; Brambati, Simona Maria; Lamari, Foudil; Michon, Agnès; Samri, Dalila; Epelbaum, Stéphane; Lacomblez, Lucette; Lehéricy, Stéphane; Habert, Marie-Odile; Dubois, Bruno; Kas, Aurélie; Migliaccio, Raffaella (Elsevier, 2018-10-10)

  • Attachment security and developmental patterns of growth in executive functioning during early elementary school 

    Growth in executive functionning
    Matte‐Gagné, Célia; Bernier, Annie; Sirois, Marie-Soleil; Lalonde, Gabrielle; Hertz, Sarah (Wiley, 2017-05)
    Despite the extensive research demonstrating the importance of child executive functioning (EF) for school adjustment, little longitudinal work has formally examined developmental change in EF during the early school years. Based on a sample of 106 ...
  • Attachment security and maternal behaviors as predictors of children's psychosocial adjustment at school entry 

    Mother–child relationships and children’s psychosocial functioning : the specific roles of attachment security and maternal behavior
    Sirois, Marie-Soleil; Bernier, Annie (Taylor & Francis, 2018-05-17)

  • Attachment, sexual assertiveness and sexual outcomes in women with provoked vestibulodynia and their partners : a mediation model 

    Leclerc, Bianca; Bergeron, Sophie; Brassard, Audrey; Bélanger, Claude; Steben, Marc; Lambert, Bernard (2015-08-01)
    Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is a prevalent women’s sexual pain disorder, which is associated with sexual function difficulties. Attachment theory has been used to understand adult sexual outcomes, providing a useful framework for examining sexual ...
  • The benefits of supporting the autonomy of individuals with mild intellectual disabilities: an experimental study 

    Emond Pelletier, Julie (Wiley, 2016-07-26)
    The benefits of autonomy support with the general population have been demonstrated numerous times. However, little research has been conducted to verify if these benefits apply to people with special needs. The goal of the study was to examine whether ...
  • Beyond a "woman's problem" : the role of relationship processes in female genital pain 

    Rosen, Natalie O.; Rancourt, Kate M.; Corsini-Munt, Serena; Bergeron, Sophie (2014-03)
    Female genital pain is a prevalent condition that can disrupt the psychosexual and relational well-being of affected women and their romantic partners. Despite the intimate context in which the pain can be elicited (i.e., during sexual intercourse), ...
  • 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 ...
  • Brain white matter damage and its association with neuronal synchrony during sleep 

    Sanchez, Erlan; El-Khatib, Héjar; Arbour, Caroline; Bedetti, Christophe; Blais, Hélène; Marcotte, Karine; Baril, Andrée-Ann; Descoteaux, Maxime; Gilbert, Danielle; Carrier, Julie; Gosselin, Nadia (Oxford University Press, 2019-01-28)
    The restorative function of sleep partly relies on its ability to deeply synchronize cerebral networks to create large slow oscillations observable with EEG. However, whether a brain can properly synchronize and produce a restorative sleep when it ...
