At NeuroLab we make use of neuroimaging, genetic, behavioral and neuropsychological approaches to investigate the cognitive skills and neural mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate in the surrounding. We are interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms related to spatial cognition throughout the life span (from early development to the elderly) and in the event of clinical conditions affecting the central nervous system. We have many projects that may interest you. Explore our website to find out more about our research!
------------------------------ GRADUATE STUDENT POSITION IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE ------------------------------
NeuroLab seeks qualified applicants interested in pursuing graduate studies (Master or PhD) in Cognitive Neuroscience with a research focus on investigating human spatial cognition. Students will be expected to make use of behavioural and neuroimaging studies in order to develop training programs enhancing spatial orientation skills in individuals with topographical disorientation. The laboratory provides students with state-of-the-art technology for developing experimental tasks in virtual environments and acquiring functional and structural neuroimaging data. Although not a requirement, a background in computer science or experience in developing video games will be a strong asset.
Information on how to apply to the Graduate Program is available at http://psychology.ucalgary.ca/graduate-program/psychology-graduate-program/application-information
The deadline for the application is January 1st, 2014.
