Research Interests

In broad strokes, our lab studies brain plasticity. We are asking questions such as, how does the brain adapt to changes in sensory input or to direct brain damage. We use converging techniques such as psychophysics, eye movement measurement, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to examine the brain and behaviour.

Joy is the MRI Technologist for the 3T Siemens Tim Trio MRI scanner at the York MRI Facility.  She has been working in MRI research for 10 years and continues to be amazed by the this non-invasive technology that allows us to peer into ourselves, both into our bodies and our minds (through fMRI).  Joy is also the Safety Officer for the facility, and holds training sessions on a regular basis at the facility.  Please contact Joy to sign up for a training session or to book time on the scanner.
