This project is in collaboration with the visual cognitive neuroscience lab at Brock. Please follow this link for further information on Dr. Stephen Emrich's research:
On Sunday, January 26th, the Neurocognitive Aging Lab completed the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's and raised over $1400!
Research assistants, Uroog Mohammed and Amy Holliday (pictured right), assisting PhD student, Dawn Ryan, with processing salivary hormones for her ongoing work looking at hormones and executive functioning across the lifespan.
Dr. Campbell's master's student, Emily Davis (pictured left), and PhD student, Dawn Ryan (pictured right), presented their research at the Psychonomic Society conference this past weekend.
Campbell lab grad student Dawn Ryan and fellow psych grad student Caitlyn Gallant organized a Halloween themed Paint Night at Brock on October 24th in support of the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara (CACN). The event raised $500, which will help support the centre's programs and services. Full story in the Brock News.
Dr. Campbell's first student, Dawn Ryan, successfully defended her master's thesis, "Stereotype-threat, explicit memory, and cortisol in older adults" on July 22nd. The Campbell lab is celebrating Dawn for her accomplishment, and would like to thank her committee members, Dr. Cheryl McCormick and Dr. Stephen Emrich, as well as her external examiner, Dr. Alexandra Fiocco.
Graduate student, Dawn Ryan, gave a talk on the aging brain in Niagara on Lake on June 5th at the World Events Cafe. She outlined various relevant theories and discussed the implications of her thesis research. Her talk was very well received and we can expect a follow up meeting in the near future!
