Biography: Dr. Villeneuve is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University. Her team uses multimodal neuroimaging (MRI and PET) to investigate brain changes associated with age and neurodegeneratives diseases.
Dr. Villeneuve received a PhD in Neuropsychology from the Université de Montréal in 2011. She did a first postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley, assessing the interplay between beta-amyloid deposition, vascular diseases and cognition in the preclinical phase of Alzheimer’s disease. She did a second postdoctoral fellowship at Northwestern University where she assessed the predictive value of neurovascular insults, such as deterioration of the blood-brain barrier or reduced cerebral vascular reactivity, to detect early changes associated with amyloid pathology.
