Noémie Auclair-Ouellet obtained a M.Sc. degree in Speech and Language Pathology from Université Laval in Quebec City. She went on to do a Ph.D. in joint supervision between the same university and Université de Neuchâtel in Switzerland. Her Ph.D. study focused on the production and comprehension of morphologically complex words in patients with semantic dementia and adults without cognitive impairment.
At the PCAN Lab, she is involved in a longitudinal study that aims to characterise the cognitive and neurological changes associated with MCI in individuals with and without Parkinson’s disease. Her work focuses on set-shifting performances and underlying neurological bases and on how these could be related to language production and comprehension deficits in these populations.
