What is going on at the Sheldon Lab?
Signy led a wild symposium on the interplay between detailed remembering and forgetting at the 2018 International Conference on Learning and Memory. There were some rousing discussions on when and why we remember details from the past versus forget them.
Three of our undergraduate students (Willem Le Duc, Elizabeth Dutemple & Lisa-Marie Giorgio) presented their projects at the Undergraduate Research Day, which is a day long research event to celebrate the hard work and excellence in ongoing undergraduate research at McGill. If you want to learn more about the fabulous work they have been carrying out in the lab you can visit: Abstracts or Our Team.
Cool! Signy was interviewed for Quebec Science. Funny enough, she doesn't speak French well enough to read it! Time to get those language lessons happening, tout suite!
We are all so excited that Dr. Sheldon will be chairing this symposium at the UC Irvine International Conference on Learning and Memory. Cool!
Dr. Sheldon appears as a neuroscience expert on the recently launched Educart initiative from the Musee Des Beaux-Arts. She provides a neuroscience perspective on several works on art, helping break down walls between art and science!
Congratulations to Lauri Gurguryan, our superstar Master's student who received a travel award from the CRBLM to present her research at the annual SFN meeting in Washington, D.C.. Her work suggests there are distinct hippocampal mechanisms that support autobiographical memory that depend on the nature of recall.
Congratulations to Stephanie Simpson for her submission, titled "The Interaction Between Episodic Memory and Mood", has been Highly Commended in the Psychology category of The Undergraduate Awards Programme 2017! So honored to have her as part of our lab!
Our lab has moved to a beautifully window-ed new space! We can't wait to get our research engines revving here!
SEE YOU SOON SONJA CHU and CARINA FAN!
Sonja and Carina are both headed to UofT to start their graduate careers. We will miss them in the lab and look forward to future visits and collaborations! Once part of our team, always part of our team!!!
