As we enter this new academic year, I'm going to switch this so-called blog to a 'news' feature for the lab. Here is where we will post all good (and bad) news about lab activities, publications, presentations, etc.
The first bit of good news is that we have 2 (two!) graduate students starting in the lab this semester! Catherine Noseworthy is joining the lab from UPEI in the MA Experimental Psychology program. She will be working on a project examining audiovisual integration in children with and without autism. Annika Beatteay will be continuing to hang about the lab, as she is now enrolled in the PhD Clinical Psychology program (with an NSERC award!). She will continue and expand her work on interactions between mood disorders and audiovisual processing. Looking forward to many years of good work with these two excellent researchers. We also have three Honours students and two independent study students this year - see the "People" page for their information.
Also, some news that slipped through the cracks this Spring - the lab has successfully applied for an NSERC Discovery Grant! I am very excited about this because of the opportunities and the stability it brings, which brings me to the next point: we are recruiting an NSERC-funded grad student (MA and/or PhD) to start in Fall 2021. The ideal candidate would have an interest and/or experience with researching spatial attention within and between sensory modalities. Get in touch with my contact info on the "People" page if you are interested!
