Profil

Boutheina Jemel étudie les mécanismes de reconnaissance des visages tant en ce qui concerne leur perception que la façon dont ils sont représentés en mémoire.  Pour cela, elle utilise les méthodes de l'électrophysiologie cognitive (potentiels évoqués). Cette recherche fondamentale est appliquée à une meilleure compréhension de l'autisme en collaboration avec le Docteur Laurent Mottron. À sa thématique principale, se rajoute un intérêt particulier pour l'étude des indices des processus attentionnels et leur altération dans d'autres troubles de santé mentale, comme la schizophrénie, en collaboration avec d'autres chercheurs du Centre de recherche de l'Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal.
