2021 in review

As we approach the end of 2021, it is time to take stock of our realizations!

Participation in the SNL 2021 conference

From October 5 to 8, an important international conference took place: the annual meeting of the "Society for the Neurobiology of Language 2021"!

Electroencephalography (EEG)

Electroencephalography is a technique that measures the electrical activity generated by large populations of neurons through electrodes placed on the scalp.

Congratulations to Valérie and Pascale, respectively student and director of the laboratory, for their scientific article that was recently accepted for publication! This article will be the first chapter of Valérie’s doctoral thesis.

Conference on the neurobiology of language

Interested in language and how the brain works? Whether you are a neophyte or initiated in these fields, we invite you to watch a conference given this summer by Dre. Tremblay on the topic of the neurobiology of language!

New interns in the lab: Béatrice & Alexandre

This fall, we are not welcoming one, but two new research interns to our team!

Arrival of Marjorie

The beginning of the school year always comes with new students at the lab! 

The influence of visual information on speech perception is well known. For example, when we are in a noisy environment, lipreading makes it easier to understand speech.

The McGurk effect

You like testing illusions? We invite you to experience an illusory phenomenon linked to the perception of speech!

Cognitive functions

In our research projects, we often use tests that assess cognitive functions, also called "cognition".

Podcast with Dr. Tremblay

On June 8, Pascale Tremblay, director of the laboratory, spoke with Stephen Wilson, a professor at Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA, as part of The Language Neuroscience Podcast, hosted by Professor Wilson.

Survey on verbal fluency

Have you ever scored verbal fluency tasks? We are launching today a new study, which is part of the master's project of Gabriel Frazer-McKee, a student of the lab!

Ethics approval

Several mad scientists have struck our imagination with their science experiments that had catastrophic consequences. Think of Doctor Frankenstein, who gave life to a monster made from human remains, Doctor Octopus whose body was fused to mechanical arms, or Doc Brown, who accidentally made Marty McFly travel back in time!

Being Deaf or hard of hearing

If you listen to Quebec Prime Minister Legault's press briefings on television, you may have noticed the presence of sign language interpreters. Has your curiosity been piqued by this language? Have you wondered what it must be like to live with deafness?

Meta-analysis

The results of a scientific study indicate this, those of another study rather suggest that, a third study supports the opposite... scientific literature can sometimes seem contradictory. What’s more, not all studies are of the same quality! How do you navigate all of this?!

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a brain imaging technique used by our laboratory. This fact sheet presents this technique and its interest in our research projects.

In our day-to-day language, the terms speech, language, and communication are often used interchangeably. However, are these words synonyms? As it turns out, no, they are not! 

“Why must Québécois French be my main language so that I can participate in your research project?” 

About Us

Le laboratoire des neurosciences de la parole et de l’audition, dirigé par Pascale Tremblay, Ph.D., se spécialise dans la recherche en neurosciences cognitives du langage. Nos travaux, fondamentalement multidisciplinaires, portent principalement sur les bases neurobiologiques de la perception et la production du langage et de la voix, et sur les facteurs qui affectent notre habileté à communiquer en contexte social (âge, cognition, audition, etc.).
