We study adult human neuropsychology and the neuropsychology of aging.

Fields of study

In the Phillips lab, we are interested in learning more about adult human neuropsychology and the neuropsychology of aging, with an emphasis on integrating cognitive, neuropsychological, and brain-imaging measures of brain function. Recently, we have been studying cognitive and sensory changes in older adults with or at risk for dementia.

Prospective students

We are always interested in having creative and hard working students join the lab! Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with my current areas of research.

Potential graduate students interested in applying to either the General or Clinical graduate programmes should review the submission requirements. You are welcome to contact me in advance, Please note that I will be reviewing all graduate applications together, once the official program application deadline has passed. 

Interested? Email a letter describing your research interests and experience, your C.V and a current copy of your transcript to Natalie Phillips.
Undergraduate students interested in joining the lab should send an email to Dr. Phillips and Kalista Sedemedes, including a current transcript, CV, and a brief statement of interest.
