Bio/Research

Perreault began studying behaviour neuroscience at McMaster University and continued her postdoctoral studies in neuropharmacology at the University of Toronto.

Her primary translational research focus is to understand sex differences in the cellular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism spectrum disorders, depression, and schizophrenia.

She also works to discover sex-specific neurophysiological patterns that can be used as biomarkers to identify disorder states, as well as function as an additional readout for the evaluation of novel therapeutics.

Perreault spends much of her time on Indigenous and neuroethics initiatives. She is a member of the College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists in the Royal Society of Canada, a University of Guelph Research Leadership Chair, and is a citizen of the M├ętis Nation of Ontario.
