January 2023: Happy new year from the LBC team! We look forward to another year of exciting research!
August 2022: Congratulations to LBC alumna Roni Setton, PhD, on her new PNAS publication in collaboration
with LBC alumna Laetitia Mwilambwe-Tshilobo, PhD, and Profs. Nathan Spreng and Signy Sheldon.
Their work looks at the relation between individual differences in autobiographical memory and brain
function. Check it out here!
November 2022: Dr. Nathan Spreng has been inducted into the Royal Society of Canada - congratulations on a
September 2022: LBC spotlight! Nathalie Prenevost created digital cover art to supplement a recent study
now published in PNAS by LBC alumna Roni Setton.
Digitally illustrated by Nathalie Prenevost, in collaboration with Drs. Roni Setton and Nathan Spreng.
“Humans recount the past in different ways. New evidence suggests that these individual differences in autobiographical memory recollection are related to resting-state functional connectivity of the hippocampus and temporal pole with regions in the default network”. This artwork was created to represent these concepts, with a focus on the hippocampus (depicted in purple) and temporal pole (in yellow). The proposed functional connectivity between these areas is represented by “electrical lines” resembling neurons. Finally, the scrapbook background was included to remind us of the real-life implications of this research on autobiographical memory.
September 2022: Congratulations to Dr. Laetitia Mwilambwe-Tshilobo on successfully defending her PhD dissertation!
We look forward to your continued success!
2022: Dr. Nathan Spreng was successful in obtaining a grant from the Alzheimer's Association and the
Brain Canada Foundation.
