On March 22, 2013, the first Symposium on knowledge transfer took place at CRIUGM. This symposium titled as “Knowledge Transfer: Research Feedback to an Aging Society” was organized by CRIUGM under the responsibility of Dr. Ana Ines Ansaldo, researcher and laboratory director. The aim of this event was to increase the exchange among different parties taking part in sharing knowledge about aging. Invited speakers were from various backgrounds: researchers in gerontology and geriatrics, knowledge transfer from an OBNL, members of the Citizen’s Jury, clinicians, experts of communications and media, as well as politicians.

Research Program

Dre Ansaldo focuses on the aging brain and language processing. She combines functional magnetic resonance imaging with tools from cognitive neuropsychology and communication sciences and disorders, so as to study neuroplasticity mechanisms supporting the recovery of language abilities, disrupted by stroke or dementia. Dre Ansaldo is as well interested in the impact of bilingualism on aging, in particular with regards to the cognitive and neural profiles of elderly bilinguals.
