I am a recently graduated Honours Psychology Undergraduate student interested in the ways in which we remember. My first Honours project investigated contextual boundaries and how they affect retrieval. I am currently finishing my second Honours project in Dr. Sheldon's lab, which is looking at the effects of retrieval mode on recall.
I am a fourth year Honours undergraduate student interested in studying the influence of positive and negative affect on emotional memory formation and subsequent memory recall. Previously, I have focused on how this relationship may be reflected in eye movements. Currently, I am specifically interested in age-related influences on emotional memory processes.
I am in my final year of my undergraduate degree in Psychology. My primary interests focus on how pain modulates memory generalization. I am currently working on a collaborative research project with Dr. Signy Sheldon and Dr. Mathieu Roy investigating how the predictability of pain in one experience will determine how that experience generalizes to other memories.
I’m a fourth year undergraduate psychology student interested in learning about how mood states relate to autobiographical memory. This year I’ll be working on a project that will investigate some of the ways in which depression affects autobiographical memory recall.
I am completing my B.Sc. in Psychology at McGill. I am interested in looking at false memories and how our memories can be affected by the world around us! I am currently working on a project involving priming perceptual states for retrieval of memories.
I am a Second year student majoring in Cognitive Science and minoring in Gender Studies (GSFS). Although my primary interests involve investigating the sex differences in memory performance across the adult lifespan, I am currently working on the flexibility of episodic processes in solving well and ill-defined problems, and the second using eye-tracking to resolve the effects that interference and decay have in forgetting episodic memories.
I am a third year student in Cognitive Science. I will be working on a VR project that aims to understand if people remember information when presented in a real versus virtual environment. The results will direct new research on how virtual environments affect memory.
I am a fourth year undergraduate student at McGill interested in the intersection of memory and psychopathology, particularly in the context of my work in crisis intervention at Suicide Action Montreal. Accordingly, I am working on a research project with the Sheldon Memory lab that looks at the parameters of the relationship between mood and memory processes.
