Karly Neath-Tavares

Project Coordinator

Karly is the current Project Coordinator for the NPD, and the person you will see most in the recruitment process. Karly will connect the principal investigators and their student researchers with the patient participants who have been recruited from Grand River Hospital or Freeport Health Center.

My research interests are primarily in human neuropsychology, and, more specifically, in the effects of right parietal brain lesions on behaviour. Right parietal lesions often lead to the disorder of visuospatial neglect – the inability to attend or respond to stimuli in left visual space.

Researcher
 My main research interest is biological signal processing, such as Electroencephalogram (EEG) and Elecromyography (EMG). The purpose of processing these signals is to extract the movement intentions of human, and use these intentions to interact with external environment, such as computers, robotic devices, or even other humans.

My research program involves developing an understanding of the cognitive processes, and brain regions, involved in memory and language. I am interested in knowing how we encode new information, how it is organized and represented in the brain, and how we reactivate the information during retrieval.

My interests are in Cognitive Neuroscience with a focus on Social Cognition and its neural bases. My research investigates the neural networks underlying face processing, in particular the perception and recognition of face identity, facial expressions and gaze direction.

I am interested in developing mechanistically specific models of cognitive phenomena and submitting those models to experimental examination.

My research interests pertain to the development of executive control - a set of inter-related skills that facilitate purposeful, goal-oriented behaviour.

My research focuses on: 1) understanding how the brain and other parts of the central nervous system control movements of the body and 2) translating this knowledge into post-stroke interventions that provide the best possible functional recovery in patients.

Eric Roy

Eric Roy

Researcher

My research is aimed at understanding the neurocognitive and neuromotor mechanisms underlying how movements are learned and controlled, by examining normal healthy persons as well as those with neurologic disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer's disease and Down syndrome. Since many of these disorders arise in older adults, I also focus on the effects of aging.

Richard Staines

Richard Staines

Researcher

My research interests focus on understanding: 1) how the brain interprets, adapts to and integrates sensory inputs to guide motor behaviour, and 2) how these processes are affected by and can contribute to recovery from brain injury.

Laura Middleton

Researcher

My research aims to identify ways to optimize cognition across the life course and to prevent dementia in late life. In particular, I focus on the relationship between physical activity, cognition, and brain function using techniques from several disciplines including neuroscience, exercise physiology and epidemiology.
