Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Dr. Christopher Striemer completed his undergraduate training at the University of Saskatchewan in 2001. He then worked as an EEG/ERP research assistant at Dalhousie University from 2002–2003. He received first his Masters and then his PhD in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Waterloo, completing his graduate studies in 2008. From 2008–2011, Dr. Striemer was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Brain and Mind Institute at the University of Western Ontario.
Available to supervise senior students' independent study.
Teaching and Research Interests
Dr. Striemer's primary teaching interests are in the areas of human neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience and perception.
His primary research interests are the cognitive neuroscience of attention, perception and visuomotor control. He studies these topics in healthy individuals and neurological patients using techniques such as behavioural testing, kinematic recordings and brain stimulation (e.g., tDCS).
