Welcome to the Buchsbaum Lab

We are a neuroscience lab within the Rotman Research Institute, located at Baycrest Centre in Toronto. Led by Dr. Bradley Buchsbaum, our research addresses questions at the intertwining of memory and language in young and older adults. Our lab employs cognitive neuroscience methods including behavioral testing, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and testing of patient populations.

11 October 2013: Recruiting Computer Science/Engineering Students
We are currently looking for students with computer science and/or engineering backgrounds to assist us with a new project.This research project is aimed at developing tools for conducting psychological experiments in the web browser using the HTML canvas element. The goal of the project is to develop a declarative language and programming platform for creating psychology experiments that can be easily deployed and administered on the web. This will involve a front-end javascript engine for graphical display of experiments, and a backend system for data management. Looking for students interested in web development (javascript/coffeescript), interactive graphics, reactive programming, and crowd-sourcing applications. Preference will be given to students with experience with relevant web technologies and an interest in making creative contributions to a research project.
