The lamp lab is directed by Dr. Jeffrey Wammes. Jeff received his B.A. from Western University and his M.A. and Ph.D. from University of Waterloo. He then moved on to complete an NSERC and a Banting SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship at Yale University. He joined the faculty at Queen's University in 2020, in the Department of Psychology and Centre for Neuroscience Studies.
1st yr M.Sc., Cognitive Neuroscience
I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2019, with a B.Sc. in Neuroscience. I'd like to explore the interface between cortical activation patterns and cognition. Specifically, I'd like to understand competition mechanisms in memory, and their implications for people with related cognitive disorders.
4th yr, Psychology (B.Sc)
I am currently in my fourth year of study here at Queen's and will be joining the lab as a thesis student this year! I'll be exploring mind wandering in online courses and its impact on learning. In my spare time you can find me in the park playing frisbee, reading, or cooking!
4th year, Psychology (B.Sc)
Hello! I am a thesis student in the lab this year, and I will be exploring the neural and cognitive basis of memory, and how it can be improved by distinct processes related to drawing and/or music. My downtime largely consists of playing and listening to music, reading, and writing!
3rd yr, Cognitive Science (School of Computing)
I am a 3rd-year Computer Science student who specializes in Cognitive Science. I am interested in how technology can help humans improve their physical well-being and mental health. In my spare time, I like to play video games, watch movies and work out.
2nd yr, Psychology
I'm interested in all areas of psychology, but especially cognition and how it affects behavior. I'm also interested in the ways psychology overlaps with biology. In the future, I hope to pursue a research career that allows me to integrate the two fields.
