Spotlight on Researchers

Dylan Cooke, Assistant Professor

Sensorimotor Neuroplasticity

Dr. Dylan Cooke’s innovative research program explores links between variation in brain organization and behaviour, response to injury, and the brain’s capacity to rewire itself. In laboratory experiments, variation between individuals has almost always been regarded as a complication to be minimized and thus, very little is known about individual variation in brain organization. Dr. Cooke aims to characterize and study the significance of this variation, determining how it affects skilled behaviour, resilience in the face of brain injury, and natural, adaptive changes in the brain.

Sam Doesburg, Associate Professor

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

Our ability to unravel the biological mechanisms underpinning behaviour and the mind is expanding. Dr. Doesburg leverages brain imaging technology to probe the effectiveness of intervention strategies for autism and ultimately establish a clear, scientifically-founded basis for autism treatments.
