Welcome to Michael who is joining the lab as a MSc student. Michael recently completed his BSC (honours) in Biology and Psychology at McMaster University and is interested in using object manipulation tasks to investigate the interaction between sensorimotor and memory systems in healthy volunteers and patients with medial temporal lobe impairments. He will be working with both myself and Jason Gallivan.
