Since graduating from Caen University in 2002 with a Specialized Graduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology, Julie Péron has consistently striven to combine clinical practice and scientific research.
Julie Péron is currently Senior Lecturer and Director of the Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology Laboratory at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences at the University of Geneva. She is also Head-neuropsychologist at the Adult Neurology Department of University Hospitals of Geneva.
She was a member of the Board (2015-2016) and the Commission for Continuing Education (2015-2019) of the Swiss Association of Neuropsychologists (ASNP). In 2016, she was granted the title of specialist in neuropsychology by the Swiss Federation of Psychologists (FSP).
She published more than 50 peer reviewed articles in international scientific journals in psychology and neuropsychology about the neuropsychology of behavioural control, emotional modulation of cognition-action loops and the way these processes can be relevant to the understanding of neurological and neuropsychiatric pathologies (Parkinson’s disease, obsessive compulsive disorders, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, major depression, schizophrenia, etc.).
