Personal profile


Dr Louis Renoult joined UEA as a lecturer in Psychology in September 2013. He completed his PhD at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) in 2010 and was a post-doctoral researcher at the Rotman Research Institute (Baycrest, Toronto) and at the University of Ottawa from 2010 to 2013.

His main research interest is in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience of memory and more precisely in the characterization of the similarities,
differences, and interactions between semantic and episodic memory in young and older adults. He uses behavioural as well as brain imaging methods in his research.
