Debbie-Ann is responsible for overseeing the administrative processes at the Centre for Brain Fitness. She also plays a key role in facilitating the commercialization of intellectual property from within Baycrest. Currently completing a BA Honours in Psychology, she has a keen interest in how research in rehabilitation and health can transform people's lives.
Dr. Moreno’s research interest in cognitive neuroscience focuses on brain plasticity and its implications for neurotraining and neurorehabilitation. He is especially interested in how training and rehabilitation can affect higher order processes such as language, memory and intelligence. To this point, he has studied musical training and bilingualism as experiences that depend on brain plasticity to modify cognitive networks. His research has shown that these types of training influences processing related to attention, memory, language, and intelligence. His research program incorporates multiple platforms including behavioural testing, electroencephalography (ERP), magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and neuropsychological studies.
Dr. Yunjo Lee’s research interests are centered on the study of memory, perception, related disorders and cognitive aging using behavioural testing, functional neuroimaging and eye-tracking technology. At the Centre for Brain Fitness, she is investigating how different types of cognitive training modify the brain and behavioural performance and how cognitive training protects individuals against age-related decline in memory and executive processes. She has obtained PhD and MA in Brain, Behaviour and Cognitive Sciences area from Psychology Department at York University.
