Christine Salahub, PhD
Christine is a recent graduate of the Psychology PhD program at Brock University. She completed her undergraduate Honours Psychology degree at The University of Winnipeg and her MA at Brock University. In her research, she uses event-related potentials and EEG to examine how individual differences in cognitive control affect what people pay attention to in the face of distraction.
Holly is in her fourth year of her PhD in the Behavioural-Cogntive Neuroscience stream. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and MA in Psychology at Brock University working with Dr. Emrich. Her work focuses on visual short-term memory resource models testing limitations and predictions of opposing theories with the use of behavioural, EEG, and fMRI measures.
Joel is in his fifth year of his PhD in the Behavioural-Cognitive Neuroscience stream. He completed his MA in Psychology at Brock University and his BSc (Honours) at Bishop’s University. He studies mental imagery using EEG technology.
Rosa is a graduate student under joint supervision of Professor Stephen Emrich and Professor Karen Campbell. She completed her undergraduate degree in Biology for Health Sciences and Psychology at U of T. She is quite interested in studying the age-related changes in the efficiency of memory and attention, and how these changes may be reflected in neural mechanisms. Through her research, she hopes to get a better understanding of healthy aging and potential interventions to increase the efficiency of cognitive processes, especially in old age.
