Dr. Steeves is Director of the Perceptual Neuroscience Laboratory. Her research examines how the brain adapts to changes in sensory input with the loss of one eye or to direct brain damage. She uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to reverse engineer the brain. Her lab uses TMS to transiently disrupt discrete nodes within the brain and observe changes in behaviour and brain activity.

I am a PhD candidate in Psychology. I am studying audiovisual processing and the underlying neural correlates in individuals who are unilaterally enucleated (one eye removed). I am currently funded by a TD Grant in Medical Excellence from the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and an NSERC PGS-D scholarship.

I am a PhD candidate in Psychology. My research aims to develop novel therapeutic treatment for pervasive visual hallucinations that arise from visual loss using long-term repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation to the visual cortex.

I am a Master’s student in Psychology.  I am using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to study the neuroplasticity of white matter in individuals who are unilaterally enucleated (one eye removed).  I am funded through the NSERC CREATE program.

I am a PhD candidate in Psychology - Brain, Behaviour, and Cognitive Sciences.  My research aims to study the structural and functional brain networks involved in face and object processing.  I use transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study brain connectivity.  I am funded through the NSERC CREATE program.
