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 a research assistant primarily studying how different levels of information encoding distort subjective time perception. I am also interested in how decision-making processes (specifically cognitive control) influence 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 am currently completing an honours project looking at autobiographical memory organization and aging.
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’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 recently finished my BA&Sc degree in cognitive science and anthropology. My main interest is the relationship between multimodal imagery and memory. I’m currently using eye tracking methods to compare encoding and retrieval processes for modality-specific stimuli.
This could be you!
