What pre-requisites do you look for when evaluating a potential thesis student?
Students interested in independent (PNB 3QQ3) or thesis study (PNB 4DD6/4D09) in the lab should contact Dr. Bock by email before the ballot process. Please describe your research interests and potential experience in your email, and attach an unofficial copy of your transcripts.
The laboratory hosts projects on a variety of subjects related to neuroscience with experiments covering magnetic resonance imaging in animals and humans, and computational image analysis.

Steven Brown is the director of the NeuroArts Lab in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and associated with the McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind and the LIVE Lab. The lab is devoted to developing a holistic understanding of the neural, cognitive and evolutionary foundations of the arts, creativity, and aesthetics, including: music, dance, the dramatic arts, the visual arts. A unique evolutionary focus of the lab is a revival of comparative musicology studies, including an exploration of the geography and cultural evolution of world musical styles.
