Research objectives

Inhibition troubles occur in several neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia or Parkinson's disease. These disorders affecting the daily lives of patients are also known to be a major cause of distress for caregivers. However, neural correlates of disinhibition are still poorly known and management remains limited.
The main objective of my PhD project is to study behavioural and cognitive disinhibition in bvFTD and AD patients through a semi-ecological task, a neuropsychological assessment and MRI analyses. The aim is to differentiate between different sub-forms of disinhibition associated with different neural network impairments.
