Welcome to the Memory, Attention, and Cognition Laboratory (MACL)

Memory and the mind image.

Located in the Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, and led by Dr. Colin M. MacLeod, our lab examines human cognitive skills, especially attention, learning, and memory. Our particular emphasis is on the fundamental processes that underlie memory encoding and retrieval.

To learn more about our research program and our current and recent projects, take a look at the lab's Publications page. You can also check out who we are (Profiles) and how to get involved in the lab (Join the lab). All of these links are above as well, along with a link to our contact information (Contact us).
