We will also have open discussion and Q&A period at the end of this session. This workshop is open to all of the KITE trainees, and will be facilitated by the KITE’s Associated Academic Director, Dr. Jennifer Campos, and one of the KITE’s post-doctoral fellows and a CIHR Health System Impact Fellow, Dr. Alisa Grigorovich.

Biography

Dr. Jennifer Campos is CEAL's Chief Scientist and Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Multisensory Integration and Aging. She is also Academic Associate Director at Toronto rehab and an Associate Professor in the department of psychology at University of Toronto. 

She examines how the human brain integrates different sensory signals (visual, auditory, proprioceptive, vestibular) by studying several different populations (eg, younger adults, older adults and high-level athletes), and by using behavioural measures and computational models. Using Virtual Reality and motion simulation technologies, her research understands how multisensory processes are affected by locomotor challenges and how multisensory training tools can be used to improve performance.
