We recently published a paper in the journal Memory examining the effect of shifting visual perspective on both episodic and semantic details during autobiographical memory retrieval. This paper was part of a Psychology Honours thesis on the part of Chloe King and Anna Romero. Check out the paper here.
Huge congratulations to Anna Romero who received the NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship – Master’s! This will fund Anna’s first year as a MSc student in the Memory for Events Lab.
In April, the Psychology Department hosted the annual Royce-Harder Conference. This year Psychology Undergraduate Students Milan Kalra and Shanela David presented their Honours theses. Milan’s thesis was on 360 3D videos and emotion VR, and Shanela’s was a meta-analysis examining the impact of visual perspective on emotional intensity. Dr. St. Jacques was the invited internal speaker at the conference where she discussed how adopting different visual perspectives during retrieval can reshape memories and neuroimaging evidence suggesting specific brain areas involved in supporting visual perspective.
We had our first in-person lab meeting in over two years! Everyone was very happy to meet each other, some for the very first time in-person, at our last lab meeting of the winter semester in our still very new looking lab space.
This was followed by our end of term party in-person where we played games and celebrated all the exciting things going on in the lab.
