The PNLab attends CERNEC meeting and travels to Abu Dhabi!

Last month, six members of the PNLab travelled to Saint-Sauveur to attend the 25th annual conference hosted by the University of Montreal Neuropsychology and Cognition Research Center (CERNEC). Honouring the growth of the event over the past 25 years, the theme this year was “Cérébration”.

Also attending was new PNLab member, Catherine Archambault, as well as Emma Clark, Alexia Ostrolenk, and Bianca Levy. All four presented posters on their most recent research findings. Bianca received an award from Le Prix Association québécoise des neuropsychologues (AQNP) pour la meilleure présentation affichée, for her poster: “Évaluer la charge cognitive chez les autistes usant un paradigme de suivi d’objets multiples tridimensionnel (3D-MOT).” Congratulations on your achievement Bianca!

A great weekend was had by all!

Earlier in March, Dr Bertone was invited as a guest speaker at the 2nd International Conference on Educational Neuroscience under the theme: “The Applications of Neuroscience in Education” held in Abu Dhabi, Arab Emirates, and hosted by the Emirates College for Advanced Eduction. He gave a talk entitled “Defining visuo-cognitive phenotypes in Autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions: implication for assessment and remediation” in front of more than 200 participants that included graduate students, teachers, health professionals and researchers.
