Congratulations to Rosa Torres on receiving a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Postgraduate Scholarship (Doctoral), to fund her research for the next three years. Rosa is using EEG to examine age differences in the neural correlates of attention and memory. She is co-supervised by Dr. Stephen Emrich (Psychology).
Sarah Henderson (above right) and Emily Davis attended the 64th Annual Meeting of the Psychonomic Society in San Francisco in November. Sarah presented her research on aging and mind-wandering, showing that reaction time variability can be used to determine if people are "in the zone" or "out of it" and this predicts neural activity (see the poster here). Emily presented her research showing that individual differences in attentional control related to individual differences in hyper-binding, with those showing worse control forming more target-distractor associations (see the poster here).
