Undergrad - Honors Specialization in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
Robyn Wilford is a 4th-year undergraduate student in the Department of Psychology and an undergraduate research assistant in the EMRG lab. Her research interests intersect Developmental Psychology, Neuroscience, and Ecological Psychology. She is interested in using tools from complex systems and dynamical systems theory to investigate how the relationship between neural, behavioural, and environmental dynamics change across development. In particular, she is interested in studying the development of cognition as an extension of perception-action coordination, rather than a separable construct.
