Pierre Jolicoeur studies complex cognitive systems using EEG, MEG, NIRS, and fMRI. His primary focus is on fundamental mechanisms of attention and working memory in the visual, auditory, and tactile domains and how they mediate performance in single and dual-task situations. By leveraging the exceptional kills and knowledge of extraordinary collaborators, he examines these mechanisms in normal younger and older individuals, and in a number of special populations, including mild cognitive impairment and mild traumatic brain injury. He is a full professor in the department of psychology at Université de Montréal where he holds the Canada Research Chair in experimental cognitive science and is a member of the Royal Society of Canada.
