Shedden, Judith


Judith Shedden is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour, an associate member in the department of Computing and Software, and the Principal Investigator of the Shedden Lab at McMaster University. With a group of cognitive science researchers, Shedden is using motion stimulators and scalp electrophysiology to explore various aspects of cognitive control, such as motion perception, multisensory integration, route navigation, and mindfulness meditation. Her most recent work involved studying cognitive associations with objects, as well as cognitive control as a function of mindfulness. In addition, Dr. Shedden is chair of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Canadian National Brain Bee Committee, a competition for the next generation of brain researchers to strengthen their interest in brain science and support innovations that improve Canadian health care.
