Presentation

Jean Gagnon, MPs, PhD, is a clinical psychologist, a neuropsychologist and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the Université de Montréal. His field of teaching is psychological assessment and personality theories. He is a full member of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation of Greater Montreal (CRIR) at the Centre de recherche en neuropsychologie et cognition (CERNEC).

Research expertise

Founded and directed by Dr. Gagnon, the neuropsychology and personality laboratory (LNP) at the Université de Montréal works to improve our understanding of the reciprocal influences between personality and cognitive and cerebral processes, in particular through disorders and impulsive behaviours. The work in the laboratory revolves around three theoretical perspectives:

Psychodynamic:

  • Cognitive and neuropsychological bases of such psychodynamic personality processes as defence mechanisms, moral values and standards and identity
  • Influence of such psychodynamic processes as splitting and identity diffusion on impulsive behaviour
  • Subjective experience of impulsive individuals before and after making impulsive gestures

Cognitive:

  • Processing of social information among impulsive individuals and influence of situational factors
  • Influence of cognitive distortions and dysfunctional beliefs on impulsive behaviour
  • Cognitive and neurophysiological bases of attributions of hostile intentions among impulsive individuals

Neuropsychological:

  • Cognitive and neuropsychological bases of impulsive behaviour among individuals with brain injuries
  • Cognitive and neuropsychological bases of impulsive behaviour in borderline personality disorders
  • Cognitive and neuropsychological bases of personality
  • Behavioural disorders following traumatic brain injury and development of assessment and intervention tools
