Dr. Wolf Zinke – Postdoctoral Fellow, Researcher Profile
- Wolf works on a collaborative project with Dr. Anita Disney (Vanderbilt Univ.) on neuropharmacological characterization of cholinergic and norepinephrinergic modulation of attention effects within and between neural circuits in parieto-occipitaq cortex.
Dr. Marcus Watson – Research Scientist, York University
Marcus works on projects elucidating how we learn to accurately categorize and classify objects, how we learn the relevance of different object features for these categorization tasks, and how these two forms of learning interact with each other.

Phd cand. Benjamin Voloh, M.Sc. (Dept. of Psychology)
Ben concluded his MSc in 2015 with distinction and an accepted PNAS manuscript on Theta – gamma phase amplitude coupling across prefrontal and anterior cingulate cortex for successful attention shifts!
Ben works on the dynamic circuit motifs underlying control processes in the anterior cingulate cortex.
Ben is the 2016 YorkU 3MT Winner, presenting the best 3 minute summary of a graduate thesis across campus.
Ben has been awarded an NSERC graduate student scholarship!
Phd cand. Ali Hassani (Dept. of Psychology)
Ali works on the role of noradrenergic receptor activation for the gating of attentional relevant information in prefrontal-striatal brain circuits.
Ali is a recipient of the 2016 prestigious NSERC student fellowship.
Ph.D. cand Kianoush Banaie Boroujeni, B.Sc. (Dept. of Psychology)
- Kia is interested in developing technical and analytical methods to study integrated electro-chemical construction of
primates’ brain circuitry constituting its dynamic coding, processing, and modulation of time-frequency responses.
- He is currently working on distinguishing cell-type specific circuit functions. In his main project, he is trying to non-invasively deliver drugs using Focused Ultrasound.
