Maxime Montembeault is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and researcher at the Douglas Research Centre in Montreal.

His team uses digital cognitive markers and multimodal neuroimaging to investigate linguistic and socio-emotional changes and their brain correlates in aging and neurodegenerative diseases.

He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Memory & Aging Center, University of California in San Francisco between 2019 and 2022, investigating the interaction between language and socio-emotional behavior (connected speech, prosody, social cognition, socioemotional semantics) and their brain correlates in frontotemporal dementia.
