Gregory West, Ph.D.

Gregory West is an Associate Professor in psychology at the University of Montreal. He completed his PhD at the University of Toronto in 2011 and subsequently completed a MITACS Elevate post-doctoral fellowship.

His research interests include topics relating to visual attention, spatial memory, motor control, and experience driven neuroplasticity using a variety of techniques including functional and structural neuroimaging, electroencephalography and eye tracking. His recent work has studied how video games impact attention, spatial memory abilities and neural structures, including the hippocampus and amygdala, in young adults, older adults and children. Ongoing research in his lab investigates: 1) the relationship between hippocampal integrity, risk taking, adversity and cortisol regulation in young adults and children; and 2) factors that support brain integrity during ageing.
