Shayna Rosenbaum, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, was awarded the Canadian Society for Brain, Behaviour and Cognitive Science (CSBBSC) Early Career Award for 2014 for her research on the neural bases of learning and memory in patients with memory impairment. The CSBBCS Early Career Award recognizes the exceptional quality and importance of the contributions of a new researcher (within 10 years of receiving his or her PhD) to knowledge in brain, behaviour, and cognitive science in Canada. “I feel very honoured to have been selected for this award and would like to thank my colleague, Dr. Doug Crawford, for nominating me,” said Rosenbaum.
In 2013, Dr. Rosenbaum received the Canadian Association for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award, and was recognized for this achievement at the 2014 York U Research Leaders event. Other faculty members recognized as 2014 York U Research Leaders include Drs. Douglas Crawford, Tamara Daly, David Hood, Joel Katz and Marcia Rioux.
