Congratulations Raechelle Gibson
Graduate student Raechelle Gibson (supervisor: Dr. Adrian Owen) has been awarded a Canada Graduate Scholarship - Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplement (CGS-MSFSS) from NSERC for her current Vanier CGS. The CGS-MSFSS Program supports high calibre Canadian graduate students in building global linkages and international networks through the pursuit of exceptional research experiences at research institutions abroad. By accessing international scientific research and training, CGS-MSFSS recipients will contribute to strengthening the potential for collaboration between Canadian universities and affiliated research institutions and universities, or other research institutions outside of Canada. Rae will be conducting a research project at the University of Cambridge in 2015.
Congratulations Nole Hiebert
Nole Hiebert is the recipient of the 2015 Jonathan & Joshua Memorial Graduate Studentship in Mental Health research. Nole's supervisors are Drs. Penny MacDonald and Adrian Owen.
Dr Adrian Owen is the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience and Imaging at The Brain and Mind Institute, Western University, Canada.
Our research combines neuroimaging (MRI and EEG), with cognitive studies in brain-injured patients and healthy participants.
We study patients who have sustained brain injuries that result in disorders of consciousness. We also study patients with neurodegenerative diseases in order to understand more about the causes and consequences of the memory, perception and reasoning problems that many of them experience.
Finally, we develop web-based tools for the assessment of cognitive function, both in healthy participants and in patients with disorders of the brain.
