Fields of Interest: 

Dr. Montembeault is a postdoctoral scholar at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center in the ALBA Language Neurobiology Lab led by Dr. Marilu Gorno Tempini. He completed a BS degree with honors in psychology and a PhD degree in clinical neuropsychology from University of Montreal. He aims at using multimodal neuroimaging and innovative assessment tools to better understand semantic and social cognition impairments in patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
