Child Psycholgist

A neuropsychology lab at York University

The Till Lab is dedicated to understanding the effects of environmental exposures and neurodegenerative diseases on the health of children.

We are passionate about conducting meaningful research.

It is well known that insult to the developing brain can have profound long-term effects. The Till Lab research program focuses on exploring the neuropsychological impacts of two types of insults on the developing brain – chemical exposures (e.g. fluoride, pesticides) and neurodegenerative diseases in children (e.g. multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases). Our lab applies a biopsychosocial lens to understand how insults to the developing central nervous system can interact with protective and risk factors and ultimately contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders. 

Our Research Areas.
