Department of Psychology Health and Cognition Lab


My lab focuses on examining links between health-related behaviors, stress, and cognitive functioning. I am currently focused on examining the effects of chronic cannabis use and different forms of exercise on executive functioning, creativity, retrospective memory, and prospective memory (i.e., the ability to remember to execute tasks at the appropriate later moment).  More specifically, my current research projects focus on examining: i) individual differences in the influence of cannabis on cognitive functioning, ii) the links between stress and cannabis use, iii) the perceived efficacy of different strains of cannabis on the treatment of a broad range of medical symptoms and conditions, and iv) the effects of different forms of exercise on memory, executive functioning, and creativity.
