Psychology Postdoc Highlights Research at BC Government Funding Announcement

July 16, 2018

Mitacs post-doctoral intern Myriam Juda's research aims to improve patient outcomes at Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addiction by syncing artificial lighting to natural rhythms of the sun and the body.

Juda is partnering with the centre, Simon Fraser University’s department of psychology and BC Hydro, to explore whether improvements to the physical environment – specifically matching lighting to circadian rhythms – can help make the physical environment more conducive to recovery.
