Alexandre Lehmann Ph.D
Cognitive Neuroscientist | Principal Investigator
Alexandre Lehmann (M.Eng, M.Sc., Ph.D.) is a cognitive neuroscientist, associate
professor at McGill University Faculty of Medicine and adjunct professor at
Université de Montréal Psychology department.
He received his PhD from Pierre & Marie Curie University for doctoral work
conducted at College de France and Max Planck Institute for Biological
Cybernetics. He is a principal investigator at The Brain Repair and Integrative
Neuroscience Program (BRaIN) at the Research Institute of McGill University
Health Centre (MUHC). He is a full member of the International Laboratory for
Brain, Music and Sound Research and the Centre for Research on Brain, Language
& Music (BRAMS-CRBLM) and an associate member of the Center for
Interdisciplinary Research on Music, Media and Technology (CIRMMT).
His research focuses on cognitive auditory neuroscience using neuro-imaging and
virtual reality in normal hearing and hearing impaired populations. Some of his
topics of interests are sensory-motor processing, music-based health interventions
and brain plasticity. He is interested in combining recent theoretical and
technological advances, such as neuro-phenomenology and mobile brain imaging,
to study real-world situations such as collective dancing, chanting or drumming.
