Michelle A. Dollois – Ph.D. candidate, M.Sc. in Psychology, B.A.H. in Psychology and Early Modern Studies; Minor in French.
My research is focused on investigating how strategies for attention and memory can be observed in physiological change; with special focus on the behavioural costs of anticipation and preparation, and stimulus-locked shifts in heart rate and respiration. I am also exploring what cues are used when making memory predictions. Currently, we are manipulating motoric fluency to see how the procedural memory associated with an item can influence the impressions we have of our future memory.

Broadly, my research is focused on the cognitive mechanisms that allow individuals to monitor and control their own learning and memory. Specifically, I am interested in exploring how cues like emotion and testing experience can impact our ability to predict what we will remember in the future. To this end, I utilize physiological measures like facial electromyography (fEMG), electrodermal activity (EDA), and pupillometry in tandem with behavioural measures to examine the extent to which such cues exert influence over human metamemory

My research is focused on how individuals use a variety of intrinsic and extrinsic cues when evaluating their learning and predicting their future memory performance. More specifically, I look at how cues, such as context, fluency, and test experience, impact how individuals monitor their learning and make decisions to continue studying or to re-study recently acquired information.
Katherine Churey – M.Sc. student, B.Sc.H in Biology and Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour
Broadly, my research focuses on how cognitive mechanisms such as self-monitoring may affect future memory for order. More specifically, I will be looking at how making judgements of one’s own learning during study could influence the relational processing that occurs, which I will be evaluating in terms of the temporal contiguity effect.
