Véronique Latreille, PhD

Véronique Latreille is a neuropsychologist with subspecialty training in neurologic and neurodegenerative disorders. She is a member of the Order of Psychologists of Quebec (OPQ) and an OPQ-certified neuropsychologist. She joined Dr. Birgit Frauscher’s lab at the MNI, McGill University in 2018 as a postdoctoral research fellow. She did her Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology at the Université de Montréal (2010-2016). Her thesis work aimed to identify sleep biomarkers of dementia development in Parkinson’s disease. From 2016-2018, she did a postdoctoral fellowship on sleep and epilepsy at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA. She has been working on the relationships between sleep disorders, cognitive functioning, and seizure activity in adults with epilepsy. Her fellowship was supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR, 2016-2019). From 2019-2020, she was a recipient of the MNI Jeanne Timmins Costello Fellowship. She is now the recipient of the prestigious Banting postdoctoral fellowship for 2020-2022.

As part of Dr. Frauscher’s lab, her work aims to determine whether modulation of sleep activity using direct brain stimulation can improve memory function in patients with epilepsy undergoing intracranial EEG monitoring. Véronique was awarded several prizes and scholarships for her research contributions over the past years (i.e., CIHR and FRQS Master/Doctoral Scholarships, Anne Martin-Matthews Prize in 2013, Guy-Bégin Prize in 2015, Future Clinical Researchers in Neurology and Neuroscience Scholarship in 2018). She is the author of 27 peer-reviewed papers.
