Meet Quentin Gallet
Quentin has been sensitive to psychological suffering since the beginning of his studies, and he decided to pursue his residency in the field of psychiatry. He is passionate about neuroscience and he seeks to understand the complex mechanisms of psychological problems through new scientific approaches. He holds a special interest in clinical research about the elderly, who have specific neurological patterns he decided to investigate. In 2020 he participated in the creation of the Association Nationale des Internes de Psychiatrie de la Personne Âgée (non-profit for interns studying the psychiatry of the elderly) and became its president. With his team, he tries to organize training and to share modern challenges of psychiatry for the elderly. During his free time, he often goes biking on his own, which is both a path of self-discovery and satisfies his curiosity for the external world. Experiencing nature has taught him about the importance of protecting and preserving the environment. And when his neighbors allow it, he plays the trumpet, and hopes to one day be able to improvise a few notes of jazz.
During the 2020-2021 academic year, thanks to the Harriet Hale Woolley scholarship from the Fondation des États-Unis, he will study neuroscience while participating in an innovative, therapeutic research project: teaching patients to control their emotional brain activity by instantly projecting it using a fuctional MRI.
