Squash the Stigma
Dr. Natalia Jaworska, program director of the Clinical Electrophysiology Lab at the Institute of Mental Health Research works hard to change policy and remove the stigma associated with depression within society.
Our lab has launched an exciting new research study!
We are looking at differences in brain activity and cognition in depressed youth (aged 16-24) after moderate and high-intensity aerobic exercise.

2018 Graduate Student Research Award
Emma Lynn (right), a graduate student in our laboratory, was one of this year's recipients of the Graduate Student Research Award. This bursary, funded by generous donors, is awarded to promising young scientists studying depression at the IMHR. Emma will use her bursary to travel to Chicago, Illinois for the 2019 Society of Biological Psychiatry Annual Meeting where she will present findings from her thesis research examining brain activity in patients with remitted depression.
Are Sex Differences in the Brain Real?
EEG: A Simple Introduction
As part of the Canadian Museum of Nature's 2018 "Brain: The Inside Story" exhibit, two graduate students from our laboratory (Molly Hyde & Emma Lynn) represented the Royal's Institute of Mental Health Research at the "Brain Bonanza", a weekend-long event showcasing the local neuroscience research community.
With help from Amelie Vezina (a research assistant in our laboratory), Molly and Emma created a short video for this event to help the general public understand what EEG is. This video is a great resource for anyone interested in learning about EEG - check it out!
