The Campbell lab attended the Toronto area Memory Group’s 5th annual spring meeting on May 14th, where two of the graduate students, Emily Davis and A. Dawn Ryan, gave talks. Pictured above is Emily Davis, presenting research on eye tracking and memory in older adults. Dawn Ryan presented her thesis research, investigating the role of cortisol on memory performance.
Dr. Campbell has been awarded a grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation to purchase new EEG and eye-tracker systems for the lab. These systems have high temporal precision; that is, they can record effects that only last for a few milliseconds in the brain or eyes. Since attention effects are often short-lived, this equipment will allow the Campbell lab to gain a better understanding of how aging affects one's ability to pay attention. For more information, see the full story in the Brock News.
Campbell lab graduate student, Dawn Ryan, traveled to Newfoundland last week to give two talks at her alma mater, Memorial University (Grenfell Campus).
The Campbell lab (and friends/family) participated in the Walk for Alzheimer's this past weekend. Thanks to everyone's generous donations, we were able to raise over $1,300 to support local programs and services in the Niagara Region.
