Andrew Roebuck Ph.D Physiology
My research explores the role of the endocannabinoid system in neurological and psychiatric disorders. Currently, I’m investigating modulation of the CB1R as a potential treatment for absence epilepsy and the interaction between the endocannabinoid system and psychosis.
Brittney Lins Ph.D Physiology
I'm interested in the effects of inflammation during pregnancy on long term behaviour outcomes in the offspring. I focus on behaviour related to psychiatric illness and cognition, and how abnormalities can be prevented or managed with pharmaceuticals.
Dan McElroy M.Sc. Physiology
My research interests have focused on the endocannabinoid system and its relationship to anxiety. I love everything to do with the brain including neurophysiology, brain circuitry, the BNST (obviously), and nerding out with my clay brain model.
Gavin Scott Ph.D Physiology
I am interested in studying the neural substrates underlying multiple forms of memory, including working memory and long-term memory, through the examination of patterns of neuronal activity, protein expression, neurogenesis, and animal behaviour.
Melissa Herdzik B.Sc. Honours, Physiology & Pharmacology
Michael Anderson M.Sc. Physiology
I am interested in studying the effects of immune system activation during pregnancy on the attention span of offspring
Nancy Cai B.Sc. Honours, Physiology & Pharmacology
Tim Onofrychuk B.Sc. Physiology & Pharmacology
I am interested in the characterization of neural circuitry by using lightweight, head-mounted microscopes in freely moving rats. I am also interested in the utilization and development of open source science.
