The 5th annual PSYC Research Lab Fair scheduled for October 24th, 2023 has been cancelled.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com. We hope to see you in the next Research Lab Fair.
The Adolescent Health Lab puts great emphasis in understanding the factors that increase risk and provide protection during pre-adolescence and adolescence to better support healthy development and intervene during these critical transitions to reduce risk. In adjunction to our research, our lab is also involved with the Connect Attachment Program, an evidence-based, program for parents and alternate caregivers of pre-teens and teens who struggle with significant behaviour problems and mental health issues. To learn more about our work, please visit https://www.adolescenthealth.ca/ and our booth at the Research Lab Fair!
|The All Families Lab will be presenting ongoing research on parenting, mindfulness, and cultural factors related to family functioning, and discuss their research trajectories. They are actively recruiting volunteer research assistants during the lab fair.
|The Spalek LAMP aims to shine a light on the inner workings of human cognition. In the lab, we investigate phenomena related to attention, perception, and working memory. To do so, our lab uses a variety of techniques including behavioural measures, electroencephalography, and non-invasive brain stimulation. We will have some of our equipment on display. Visitors to the table will also be able to run through a short demonstration of an effect under study, called “object substitution masking”.|
The Autism & Developmental Disabilities Lab researches Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, and other Developmental Disabilities. We will be presenting current studies and recruiting for our camps.
|The Close Relationships Lab studies how romantic relationships change over time and how people can have satisfying and healthy romantic relationships. This lab currently focuses on the experiences of people in ethically non-monogamous relationships (e.g., polyamory, open, or swinging) to learn how they may succeed despite the challenges of stigma from dominant hetero- mono-normative society.
|The Cognitive Science Lab under supervision of Dr. Mark Blair works to study attention and learning in a variety of settings and applications. Their current projects range from working with esports replay files, immersive virtual reality, user interface design, and more. They are currently recruiting members, so please drop by and see if the lab would be a good fit for you.
|The CORTECH Lab studies the psychosocial determinants of health after concussion across the lifespan (adolescents and adults) and use these insights to develop accessible behavioural interventions for those with persistent symptoms. Our lab will be promoting recruitment for potential participants and also presenting trivia/quiz to promote awareness about concussion on campus.
|The Culture and Development lab in the Psychology Department at Simon Fraser University studies the impact of early experience on child development. We focus on questions pertaining to cross-cultural variation in the first 8 years of life.|
Students will be able to participate in a fun memory game where they try to both remember faces and match different pictures of the same person. Through this game, students will get a taste of the kind of research conducted by the Eyewitness Memory Lab.
Dr. Aknin's Social Psychology Lab investigates what types of behaviour and people promote connection, kindness, and well-being. Their station will be collecting data for an ongoing research study!
People involved in supportive intimate relationships experience better psychological and physical health. However, even good relationships are hard to maintain. Given the crucial role of intimate relationships in protecting people against psychological and physical health problems, our research aims to determine when and for whom relationships foster greater well-being. The SECURE Lab will present the latest research in the domains of relationship and singlehood studies with posters.
|SMPSS employs an array of tools from theoretical psychology including conceptual, philosophical, and historical analysis, mixed (i.e., quantitative-qualitative) methods research design, and a variety of other methods for characterizing the major theoretical and epistemological approaches to the study of psychological and related phenomena. Their primary aim is to understand how psychological researchers approach their subject matter, and to clarify where their philosophical, theoretical, and methodological approaches/rationales are sound and where they are not.
|The Translational Neuroscience lab uses touchscreen-based cognitive testing in mice and humans to try and understand how sleep and circadian rhythm disturbances contribute to the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease. There will be scientific posters, a power point presentation with the images of our studies, CANTAB test introduction on iPad, and games that imitates the experiments we do in animals (Touchscreen Cognition Chambers).
