Erin L. Mazerolle

Dr. Mazerolle has recently joined the Department of Psychology at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, as an assistant professor. Erin uses advanced fMRI techniques to understand the interactions between brain function and blood supply in cerebrovascular disease.

Erin was previously a post-doctoral scholar in Dr. Bruce Pike's lab at the University of Calgary.

Following a BSc (Honours, Neuroscience & Computer Science), Erin completed her MSc and PhD (Psychology/Neuroscience) at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Her PhD research examined the feasibility of using fMRI to study white matter activation. This work has potential applications to the study of brain connectivity and white matter disease.
