The Laboratory of Brain and Cognition is directed by Nathan Spreng, a Full Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. The lab examines large-scale brain network dynamics and their role in cognition. Currently, we investigate attention, memory, cognitive control, and social cognition, and the interacting brain networks that support them. We are also actively involved in the development and implementation of multivariate and network-based statistical approaches to assess brain structure, connectivity and activity. In doing so, we aim to better understand the properties of brain networks underlying cognitive processes as they change across the lifespan in health and disease.
We are looking for motivated individuals whose presence will be beneficial to overall lab productivity. Lab members are expected to participate and contribute in group efforts as well as being capable of working independently towards personal and lab goals. Members must be able to quickly learn the concept of experimental design, data collection, and analysis. Programming experience is not necessary but would be extremely beneficial as it is essential for this line of research. Contact Dr. Spreng with the following information:
Graduate students are encouraged to contact Dr. Spreng to express their interest in working in the lab. Here is some advice for prospective students:
Post-doctoral candidates are also encouraged to contact Dr. Spreng directly.
