What we're looking for!

Lana Trick is looking for qualified, ambitious and interested Honours students, Neuroscience 4401/4402 students, and Research Interns.

If you have a background in research methods as well as either cognition or perception and are interested in becoming part of Lana Trick's DRiVE Lab (driving simulation) or Visual Attention Lab, please continue reading to see how you can join us.

I am interested in working with undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduates are welcome to take part as research interns (PSYC*3900), or thesis students (PSYC*4870 and PSYC*4880). I also supervise Masters and Doctoral candidates as they work on their dissertations.

I request that students who are interested in working with me have completed the following courses:
