A lab that bridges basic research and clinical application in neuropsychology
Principal Investigator: Kristoffer Romero, Ph.D., C.Psych
Our research explores the fundamental mechanisms of memory, and also how our memory abilities impact how well we function in everyday life.
We are delighted to welcome our newest clinical neuropsychology grad student, Toni Solis! Toni has a very interesting background, recently immigrating to Canada from the Philippines where she was a licensed psychologist working in a memory clinic for geriatric patient populations. Toni is also a licensed psychotherapist in Ontario. We're lucky to have you!
SSHRC GRANT ON PHILIPPINE EDUCATED NURSES GRANTED!
A recent grant led by Edward Cruz (Faculty of Nursing) was just awarded funding by SSHRC! Dr. Romero is a co-investigator and will be helping analyze quantitative data on these nurses' work experiences in Ontario. There is virtually no data on Philippine educated nurses in Ontario, despite them comprising a sizeable proportion of the nursing work force.
Dr. Romero and his collaborators at York University, the University of Toronto, and Baycrest Health Sciences had their manuscript on cluster analysis of cognitive performance accepted for publication in the Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology.
Astrid and Dr. Romero had their manuscript on multivariate base rates of cognitive impairment accepted in the Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology. Yay!
