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’m a U3 psychology student interested in learning about the factors that affect autobiographical memory processes, such as emotion or psychopathology. This year I will be working on a project that looks at whether individuals tend to rely on episodic or semantic details when remembering, and if this differs between younger vs older and healthy vs clinical participants. I will also be designing a study to test how certain characteristics of depression affect episodic memory.
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 third year undergraduate student majoring in psychology and minoring in education. This year I will be working on a course project that is an extension of a study on remembering details from learned events and it effect on memory generalization.
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 Undergraduate Psychology student at McGill, interested in false memories and the correlation of personality and behavioral changes with cognitive age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease. I will be working on various research projects with the Sheldon Memory lab, including one that looks at the impact of age-changes to episodic memory on solution generation during real-world problem solving.
I am a second year Honours psychology student interested in the differences between healthy and unhealthy cognitive aging. I will be working on a VR project that looks at how we encode and remember details from 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 third year Honours student interested in the interaction between trauma and memory processes, particularly in cases of post-traumatic stress disorder and intergenerational trauma. Currently, I am investigating individual differences in imagery capacities and how they relate to the recall of imagined events.
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.
I am a second year undergraduate student studying Cognitive Science with a focus on neuroscience and psychology. This year I have been helping with investigating the effects of retrieval mode on story recall. I am interested in the connections between an individual's environment and their memory!
