Congratulations to Balmeet Toor who was awarded the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), and University of Ottawa Excellence Award. Balmeet's graduate research will investigate the impact of aging on sleep-dependent memory consolidation.
The Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation has announced that Stuart Fogel has been awarded the Early Researcher Award to investigate the impact and neural correlates of aging on the lost benefit of sleep to sleep-dependent memory consolidation.
Congratulations to Raphaelle Robidoux who was awarded a scholarship from OGS and FRQS! Her PhD aims to investigate the neural correlates of sleep-dependent memory consolidation for cognitively complex procedural memory.
NSERC has announced the that University of Ottawa Sleep Research Laboratory has received an NSERC Discovery grant to investigate the neural correlates of human cognitive abilities during sleep.
NSERC has announced that The University of Ottawa Sleep Research Laboratory has received an NSERC Engage Plus grant to develop and refine an automated system capable of identifying the physiological signs of drowsiness and of lapses in responding, with the hopes of preventing motor vehicle accidents.
Congratulations to Himanshu Gupta who was awarded an NSERC USRA. His Undergraduate research is focussed on uncovering why some individuals nap habitually, while others avoid napping.
Do tired and overworked doctors on marathon shifts make more mistakes? It’s a nightmare that many people don’t think about: How your doctor’s schedule may be harming your health. Dr. Stuart Fogel from Western University's Brain & Mind Institute puts this question to the test on CBC Marketplace.
NSERC has announced that The Brain & Mind Sleep Laboratory has received an NSERC Engage grant to study the physiological and behavioural correlates of drowsy driving. This research aims to identify the early warning signs of lapses in responding, with the hopes of preventing motor vehicle accidents.
Congratulations to Valya Sergeeva who was awarded the Ontario Graduate Scholarship. Her Masters research aims to identify and characterize sleep-related memory deficits in individuals suffering from Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, and to disentangle the impact of disturbed sleep on memory functioning from the etiology of the disorder.
