James has been a member of the SMART Lab since 2011 and completed his BA in 2013, where he then worked as the lab manager following graduation. His primary interests lie in music cognition and hearing. James conducted his undergraduate thesis on the impact of differing levels of arousal in music on long-term memory consolidation, and is currently working on various projects including the effect of binaural delay on the frequency following response. James has developed experience in audiometry (pure-tone, bone-conduction, brainstem responses), electroencephalography (EEG), and peripheral psychophysiology (EMG, GSR, PPG, etc.). James is now completing his graduate studies in Audiology at Western University.
