PhD candidate, Behavioural & Cognitive Neuroscience
Email: cl02zz@brocku.ca
Supervisor: Dr. Sid Segalowitz
RESEARCH INTERESTS: Working under the supervision of Dr. Sid Segalowitz, my research focuses on the association between ERP markers of attentional control and self-regulation (e.g., executive functioning) in adolescence. I also plan to study genetic polymorphisms that may be key to these associations.

Kevin MacDonald
PhD candidate, Behavioural & Cognitive Neuroscience
Email: km11pv@brocku.ca
Supervisor: Dr. Kimberly Cote
RESEARCH INTERESTS: With my current research, I am examining the connection between memory function and different neurophysiological components of sleep. Specifically, I am exploring how sleep may play a role in optimizing the efficiency of memory by selectively strengthening some memories over others. As part of the Brock University Sleep Laboratory, I am also involved in research examining the effects of sleep restriction on various aspects of cognitive functioning and emotion regulation.

Taysa-Rhea Mise
PhD candidate, Social/Personality
Email: tm11hs@brocku.ca
Supervisor:  Dr. Michael Busseri
RESEARCH INTERESTS: My research focuses on examining the links between motivation and well-being. Specifically, I am currently studying how various motivational constructs at both the state and trait level relate to each other, and to both eudaimonic and hedonic well-being.
Additionally, I am also looking at how motivation towards activities and subjective activity experiences individually and together predict life satisfaction.

Alicia Rubel
PhD candidate, Social/Personality
Email: ar10hd@brocku.ca
Supervisor: Dr. Carolyn Hafer
RESEARCH INTERESTS: I am interested in three, often intersecting, lines of research: 1) Belief in a just world; victim blaming; meaning in life; activism 2) Dual-process theory; consciousness; automaticity 3) Human sexuality; consensual non-monogamy; polyamory; discrimination. My PhD thesis examines the possibility that believing that the world is just provides individuals with a sense of meaning in life.

Malvina Skorska
PhD candidate, Social/Personality
Email: ms10yp@brocku.ca
Supervisor: Dr. Tony Bogaert
RESEARCH INTERESTS: I am interested generally in human sexuality. Currently, my interests lie in examining biological and social factors involved in sexual orientation development, specifically birth order, height and facial characteristics. I am also interested in research on intergroup relations and am currently focused on investigating essentialism.

Julie St.Cyr-Baker
PhD candidate, Behavioural & Cognitive Neuroscience
Email: js01cb@brocku.ca
Supervisor: Dr. Dawn Good
RESEARCH INTERESTS: My research focuses on emotional arousal (self-report and physiological indices) and neurocognitive functioning of persons who have sustained mild head injuries (e.g., concussion). As a member of the Neuropsychology Cognitive Research Lab at the Lifespan Development Research Institute at Brock University I am also involved in research projects examining personality characteristics, emotionality, and health-related behaviours in individuals with mild head injuries.

RESEARCH INTERESTS: My interests centre on accounting for cognitive impairments associated with various forms of distraction. Through examining which types of material are distracting and for whom distraction is maximal, I hope to better our understanding of the cognitive mechanisms and behavioural outcomes of distraction.

Meghan Weissflog
PhD candidate, Behavioural & Cognitive Neuroscience
Email: mw08nh@brocku.ca
Supervisor: Dr. Sid Segalowitz
RESEARCH INTERESTS: My research has largely focused on identifying electrophysiological correlates of abnormal emotion recognition processes associated with psychopathic personality traits. In addition, I am also currently using event-related potential and physiological technology to examine the relationship between sociopolitical ideology and on-going performance monitoring during task performance. Finally, I am generally interested in the application of various EEG/ERP signal decompositions methods (e.g., independent components analysis, time-frequency analyses) to further understand the underlying processes that contribute to the generation of these signals at the scalp.
