Positions Available

 

Vision: Science to Application (VISTA) Program Seeking Applicants:

We are currently looking for new Masters, Doctoral and Post Doctoral trainees to be a part of the VISTA program to Please visit here for more details.

'Brain in Action' Program Seeking Applicants:

We are currently looking for new students and Post Doctoral members of the 'Brain in Action' program to start in 2015. Please visit here for more details.

Other Graduate Studies:

I'm usually on the look-out for good graduate students through the York Psychology, Biology or Kinesiology & Health Science Graduate Programs. At the moment, some of my Ph.D. students are funded by federal scholarships, but additional funds are available through my grants and through teaching assistantships. Most of these studies are done in conjunction with York's Neurosicence Graduate Diploma Program.

Other Postdoctoral Fellowships:

  • Usually have grant funds for Post Doctoral fellow in one of the areas of research (Eye-Hand Coordination, 3-D Gaze Control, Trans-Saccadic Integration)
  • If you are interested in working with me through these opportunities and qualified, drop me a note (Please, only serious inquires from people with PhDs in a relevant field!).

Participants for Research Studies:

We are always seeking participants who would volunteer to be subjects in various TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) research studies.

 

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is popular noninvasive brain imaging technique used by psychologists and neuroscientists the world over to study how the brain works. TMS coils are composed of copper wires that create rapidly changing magnetic fields when a current is discharged through them. When placed against the scalp, this magnetic flux induces a very weak current in the brain, which momentarily disrupts (in the order of milliseconds) activity in that region. When the technique is paired with a cognitive, perceptual or motor task, this allows researchers to study how the region being stimulated contributes to the processing of the task at hand. There are no known adverse health effects from receiving TMS at the parameters that we use in this lab.

 

Any data collected will be kept confidential and will be used only for research purposes.

 

If you participate, you will be compensated $20/hr.

 

If you like to volunteer to be a subject for our research studies, please contact
