SFU psychology researchers are seeking volunteers to learn more about a condition popularly known as “mommy brain,” in which hormones are thought to affect women’s memories during pregnancy. Investigators with the Maternal Cognition Research Program are looking for healthy women in their second or third trimester to be study participants.

The volunteers will complete a 90-minute memory test and have their hormones measured via a saliva sample and hand scan. The researchers hope the results will help health-care professionals deliver more effective pre- and post-natal care. In a 2005 study, researchers found preliminary evidence that fetuses can have specific effects on mothers’ memories. More info: or call Jaime Palmer: 778.782.7656 or 778.846.6476.
