Join Concordia professors Natalie Phillips, Department of Psychology, and Claudine Gauthier, Department of Physics, as they share their research on how certain lifestyle choices can minimize the risk for dementia and other aging-related diseases.
Gauthier completed her Ph.D. investigating cerebral physiology in healthy aging using quantitative fMRI under the supervision of Richard Hoge at the University of Montreal. After her Ph.D.,Gauthier completed a postdoctoral position in Neurophysics and Neurology at the Max-Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, under the supervision of Drs. Robert Turner and Arno Villringer.
Gauthier joined Concordia as an assistant professor in 2014. She is an associate professor and holds the Henry J.M. Barnett New Investigator Award from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. She is also a researcher at the Montreal Heart Institute, where she holds the Michal and Renata Hornstein Chair in Cardiovascular Imaging. Her work is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Funds for Innovation and the Québec Bio-Imaging Network.
