I recently completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and I am currently undertaking a Vacation Research Scholarship under the supervision of Dr Keage. My project is concerned with exploring the relationship between cognitive reserve and performance on an old-new memory task, as assessed using both behavioural (accuracy) and electrophysiological (EEG) measures. This project makes use of data previously collected by CAIN Lab alumna Louise Lavrencic.
