People

Principal Investigator:

Jonathan S. Cant, PhD

I was born in Hamilton, Ontario, but spent my formative childhood and adolescent years in Mississauga and Oakville, respectively. After completing high school in Oakville, I attended Western University in London, Ontario, and received my undergraduate degree in Psychology. I decided to stay at Western for graduate school, and under the supervision of Dr. Melvyn Goodale, I received my graduate degree in neuroscience. After graduate school, I received additional training during a three year postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University in Boston, under the supervision of Dr. Yaoda Xu. At the end of my postdoctoral fellowship, I accepted a position as an assistant professor in the department of psychology at University of Toronto Scarborough.

My research involves studying visual perception and cognition using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques (fMRI). My areas of expertise are object perception (both single objects and ensembles of multiple objects), shape and texture perception, scene perception, visual attention, and visuomotor control.
