We are part of the Department of Psychology at Ryerson University, and our home on campus is the Psychology Research and Training Centre at 105 Bond Street.

Our research examines the cognitive and brain processes underlying complex cognition in younger and older adults. We are particularly interested in the effects of motivation, affect, and reward on perception, attention, memory, and decision making.
