Program description:
Sleep disturbances are highly prevalent and are associated with cognitive complaints as well as alterations in brain areas critical for cognitive processing. Greater insomnia difficulties are also associated with greater risk of later cognitive decline. In addition, biomarkers of neurodegeneration have been found associated with short sleep and altered EEG activity during sleep, suggesting that disturbed sleep may contribute to the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative diseases.

The selected postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to work on a research program that will further examine the relationships between sleep, biomarkers of neurodegeneration, and cognitive performances in various clinical populations, using a multimodal approach (e.g., EEG, neuroimaging). This program will contribute to a deeper understanding of the role of sleep in memory and cognitive decline, and will have clinical implications for future therapeutic approaches.

The fellow will have access to Concordia’s PERFORM Center, an 8000m2 facility devoted to health prevention that hosts multiple research platforms such as a Sleep Lab and an Imaging Suite (including a 3-Tesla MRI, SPECT-CT and PET-CT), fully dedicated to research. The PERFORM Sleep Lab, led by Dr. Dang-Vu, includes 3 bedrooms equipped with polysomnography and high-density EEG systems, actigraphy devices and cognitive testing equipment.
