I am a third year undergraduate student majoring in Psychology. I am interested in the process of episodic memory encoding and the role of the hippocampus in memory recall. I am currently working on a project which looks at the effects of autobiographical memory induction on empathy.
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 also am interested in how decision-making processes (specifically cognitive control) influence memory processes.
I am a fourth year undergraduate student majoring in Psychology and double minoring in Economics and Marketing. My main interest is exploring human behaviour across different disciplines and understanding social decision-making through behavioural economics. This year I will study the age impacts on the use of memory in consumer decision-making.
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 third-year Honours student currently contributing to research projects furthering our understanding of the effects of event segmentation on temporal memory, exploring how visual imagery influences episodic memory processes, and investigating the effects of induced mood on recalled autobiographical memories.
I am an undergraduate Psychology student interested in learning about how mood states relate to memory. Namely, I want to learn about how certain moods, both positive and negative, can affect our autobiographical memory recall, and if this can lead to the formation of false memories.
I am finishing my BA&Sc in cognitive science and anthropology. My main interest is the relationship between multimodal imagery and memory. I’m currently using eye tracking to compare encoding and retrieval processes for modality-specific stimuli.
I am in my final year of my undergraduate degree in Psychology. I am interested in looking at how certain memories are recalled. I am currently working on a project which looks at the cue effects on how we recall our autobiographical memories.
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 completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology. I am interested in how memories are formed and how they can be changed. I’m currently examining some key differences between the anterior and posterior portions of the hippocampus.
This could be you!
