Hypoxia & Cognition

Evan is currently working on completing his M.Sc in the department of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology. He is interested in how hypoxia effects cognition, and the differences between normobaric and hypobaric hypoxia. More specifically, he is using an EEG to measure brain activity during an attention task while the participant is hypoxic. He is also measuring blood flow to the brain, oxygen saturation levels,blood pressure, and the amount of carbon dioxide exhaled during the task. He hopes that his experiment will help in our understanding of how cognition and blood flow to the brain are impacted by hypoxia.
