About the lab:
In the Developmental Social and Cognitive Neuroscience (DevSCN) lab we are interested in understanding the mental lives of children and adolescents. To achieve this goal we take a holistic approach to examine demographic and lifestyle influences on the development of cognitive (i.e., executive function) and social cognitive (i.e., theory of mind) abilities, and the accompanying changes in brain structure and function. Our lab is interested in examining neurocognitive development in both typically and atypically developing children and adolescents (e.g., those diagnosed with ASD) using naturalistic paradigms, such as movie watching.
Note: We will be accepting graduate students for the Fall of 2022. Please get in touch if you are interested
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Statement:
The Developmental Social and Cognitive Neuroscience Group is to committed to providing a diverse and inclusive environment and to remove barriers faced by equity-seeking groups. We aim to create, support and maintain a learning, research, and work environment that is free from discriminatory and intimidating behaviour. We do this because we believe every person, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, neurodiversity, citizenship, and all other aspects that make them unique, has a right to equal treatment, and our group is strengthened by diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences.
