The Perceptual Neuroscience Laboratory (PNLab) for Autism and Development is dedicated to developing cognitive assessment tools and optimizing educational and cognitive interventions based on the unique information processing abilities of neurodivergent children and adolescents. To this end, we use different experimental approaches (psychophysics, questionnaire reports, cognitive assessments, EEG, eye-tracking, etc.) to characterize audio-visual processing that account for sensory-related cognition and behavior in neurotypcial and neurodivergent persons from the shool-ages through to adulthood.
The PNLab has satellite locations at the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology (ECP) at McGill University (Duggan House) and at Rivières-des-Prairies Hospital (RDPH), a pediatric hospital in Montreal that that is affiliated with the CIUSSS du Nord-de-l’Île-de-Montréal.
Our work is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and les Fonds de la Recherche en Santé du Québec (FRSQ).
