I completed my PhD in Psychology at uOttawa, followed by fellowships at the University of Calgary (2012-14) and McGill University (2014-17).
In addition to my position as Director of the EEG & Cognitive Research Lab, I am an Assistant Professor (Research) in the Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine at uOttawa and Adjunct Professor in Psychology at both uOttawa and Carleton University. My research focuses on understanding mental illness using imaging and clinical electrophysiology, and how this information can help with treatment.
We are NOT accepting any students from uOttawa's Neuroscience program for 2021-2022.
Natalia Jaworska, PhD
Following the completion of my Ph.D. (1976) at the University of London and York University (England), I served as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Psychopharmacology Unit of the University of Guelph before moving to the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre.
At the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research, I was Director of the Clinical EEG laboratory until March 2017. Though I am now partially retired, I am still involved in the supervision of graduate and undergraduate students and hold affiliations at both uOttawa and Carleton University.
I completed my B.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Psychology at the University of Ottawa and conducted my honours thesis under the supervision of Dr. Verner Knott. I am currently in my 5th year of my M.A.-Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology at the University of Ottawa.
My thesis is examining the early neural correlates and predictors of the rapid antidepressant response to repeated ketamine infusions in treatment-resistant depression. Outside the lab, I enjoy gardening, travelling, and playing with my cats!
