    Roger Godbout is a clinical psychologist for whom research focuses on the neurosciences of behaviour, be it fundamental aspects applied, in either humans or animals. His laboratory is on the one hand a place executing research with top notch technology and knowledge bases, and on the other, a privileged place for forming students. Dr. Godbout has written over a dozen chapters, published 60 or so articles and nearly 250 abstracts and scientific communications, as well as delivering over 100 conferences in Quebec and beyond. His numerous public media appearances and his contribution to works of vulgarization denote his keen interest in sharing knowledge.

    Research Interests

    Characterization of sleep, dreams, and electroencephalograms (EEG) in mental health problems.
    Interaction between sleep organization, diurnal cognitive performance and clinical signs.
    Impact of brief sleep deprivation on mood, performance and EEG.
