Développement de la version québécoise francophone du Children’s Communication Checklist – 2 (CCC-2) : Normalisation et équivalence métrique

Vézina, Marie ; Sylvestre, Audette ; Québec, QC Canada ; Fossard, Marion

In: Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology (CJSLPA), 2013, vol. 37, p. 156-168

The assessment of language pragmatics is of prime importance for differential diagnosis between language disorders and pervasive developmental disorders, both in speech therapy and child psychiatry. Indeed language pragmatics can provide discriminating insights that help properly identify the etiology of problems, and thus guide the child to appropriate resources. There are however few tools for...

Working memory and semantic involvement in sentence processing: A case of pure progressive amnesia

Fossard, Marion ; Rigalleau, François ; Puel, Michèle ; Nespoulous, Jean-Luc ; Viallard, Gérard ; Démonet, Jean-François ; Cardebat, Dominique

In: Neuropsychologia, 2006, vol. 44, no. 3, p. 335-338

ED, a 83-year-old woman, meets the criteria of pure progressive amnesia, with gradual impairment of episodic and autobiographical memory, sparing of semantic processing and strong working memory (WM) deficit. The dissociation between disturbed WM and spared semantic processing permitted testing the role of WM in processing anaphors like pronouns or repeated names. Results showed a globally normal...

Indirect anaphora in English and French: A cross-linguistic study of pronoun resolution

Cornish, Francis ; Garnham, Alan ; Cowles, H. Wind ; Fossard, Marion ; Andrée, Virginie

In: Journal of Memory and Language, 2005, vol. 52, no. 3, p. 363-376

There is disagreement within both linguistics and psycholinguistics concerning the use of unaccented third person pronouns to refer to implicit referents. Some researchers (e.g., Erkü & Gundel, 1987) argue that it is impossible or highly marked, while others (e.g., Yule, 1982) maintain that it is not only acceptable but commonly used in normal discourse. However, both sides in the debate may be...

The role of Basal Ganglia in Language Production: evidence from Parkinson's disease

Macoir, Joël ; Fossard, Marion ; Mérette, Chantal ; Langlois, Mélanie ; Chantal, Sophie ; Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie

In: Journal of Parkinson's Disease, 2013, vol. 3, p. 393-397

According to the dominant view in the literature, basal ganglia do not play a direct role in language but are involved in cognitive control required by linguistic and non-linguistic processing. In Parkinson's disease, basal ganglia impairment leads to motor symptoms and language deficits; those affecting the production of verbs have been frequently explored. According to a controversial theory,...

Les troubles morphologiques flexionnels dans la maladie de Parkinson : origine procédurale et/ou exécutive ?

Macoir, Joël ; Fossard, Marion ; Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie

In: Revue Française de Linguistique Appliquée, 2012, vol. 17, no. 2, p. 101-115

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative neurological condition characterized by motor deficits but also by cognitive deficits affecting working memory, declarative memory and attentional capacities. With respect to language, the disease is also marked by the impairment of inflectional morphological processes. In this article, we present and discuss the respective supports to the procedural...

Toward an Executive Origin for Acquired Phonological Dyslexia: A Case of Specific Deficit of Context-Sensitive Grapheme-to-Phoneme Conversion Rules

Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie ; Fossard, Marion ; St-Pierre Catherine ; Macoir, Joël

In: Behavioural Neurology, 2013, vol. 26, p. 171-173

Phonological dyslexia is a written language disorder characterized by poor reading of nonwords when compared with relatively preserved ability in reading real words. In this study, we report the case of FG, a 74-year-old man with phonological dyslexia. The nature and origin of his reading impairment were assessed using tasks involving activation and explicit manipulation of phonological...

Theory of mind and cognitive processes in aging and Alzheimer type dementia: a systematic review

Démonet, Jean-François ; Fossard, Marion ; Sandoz, Mélanie

In: Aging & Mental Health, 2014, vol. 18, no. 7, p. 815-827

Objectives: Theory of mind (ToM) performance in aging and dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT) has been a growing interest of researchers and recently, theoretical trends in ToM development have led to a focus on determining the cognitive skills involved in ToM performance. The aim of the present review is to answer three main questions: How is ToM assessed in aging and DAT? How does ToM...
