LPVS stand out at the SQRP scientific meeting

Several students stood out this weekend at the 40th annual conference of the Société Québécoise pour la Recherche en Psychologie.

We especially want to congratulate Joël Guérette who has been awarded the prize for best oral communication in all categories. His project of study to measure if screaming after the referee advantage or not a sports team.

We would also like to acknowledge the appointment of Isabelle Charbonneau as student representative on the SQRP Board of Directors. She will be the student voice over the next two years. Good luck in your mandate Isabelle. We can not wait to see what you have planned for us.

A LPVS student wins the first place in the UQO’s competition “My thesis in 180 seconds”

Congratulations to Camille Saumure, a second-year doctoral student in neuropsychology who won the honours of this 2018 edition of MT180 with the presentation entitled Which of these two faces expresses the most pain? This project aims to study the impact of culture on the decoding of facial expressions of pain.

Camille Saumure will represent the UQO at the Grand National Finale, which will be held in conjunction with the 86th Congrès de l’Association francophone pour le savoir (ACFAS), held May 7-11, 2018, at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (UQAC).

Recall that two LPVS students have been to the national and international finals in recent years: Olivier Paquin participated in the national final in 2014 and Camille Daudelin-Peltier participated in the international final in Paris in 2015.

Well done Camille!
