ANNICK TANGUAY, Ph.D.
I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Communication and Memory Lab. Through this fellowship, I unite my long-lasting interest in memory with my interest in dynamic and complex social interactions. First, I will investigate how older adults and people with Alzheimer’s Disease interact with a partner during a conversation. Next, I will examine what brain structures tell us about the cognitive functioning of people with and without a traumatic brain injury. Before this postdoctoral fellowship, one of my most important achievements was obtaining my Ph.D. in experimental psychology at the University of Ottawa (Canada), supervised by Dr. Patrick Davidson.
I recently arrived in Nashville directly from my home country, Canada. I am excited to meet new people and discover all that Nashville has to offer. Apart from my adventure moving from North (Canada) to South (US), the most important fact about me is that I strongly value my family. I am particularly close to my twin sister.
