Dr. Bréchet is a Cognitive Neuroscientist and Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Post-doctoral Fellow. She joined HSL after her Post-doctoral Research Fellowship at University of Geneva, Switzerland, where she specialized in studying autobiographical memory using electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) methods. Dr. Bréchet completed her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she tested the neural mechanisms of autobiographical memory and self-consciousness using EEG, fMRI and virtual reality (VR) methods. She is dedicated to improving memory and cognition in patients suffering with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Alzheimer’s disease related dementia (ADRD) as well as examining the normally aging populating. Dr. Bréchet is interested in combining her expertise in electroencephalography (EEG) with non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) methods to enhance memory functions. She is currently working with Prof. Alvaro Pascual-Leone.
