Welcome to the O.U.C.H. [Opportunities to Understand Childhood Hurt] Laboratory website. The Lab is run by Dr. Rebecca Pillai Riddell, an Associate Professor at York University (Department of Psychology), a Scientific Staff member at Sick Kids (Department of Psychiatry Research), and an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Toronto (Department of Psychiatry). Our Laboratory primarily focuses on understanding how caregivers and children interact within the context of pain. Our research is performed in a variety of settings from our lab space on the York University Campus to the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of major Toronto hospitals.
The O.U.C.H. Lab was officially moved in May 2013. It is located in suites 2004-2006 in the Sherman Health Science Research Centre. The Laboratory space is divided into two areas with observational technologies, physiological equipment and portable observational computing systems.
