Cassandra Morrison


Post-Doctoral Fellow

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. D. Louis Collins in the Neuro Imaging and Surgical Technologies (NIST) Laboratory. I obtained my B.Sc. from University of Ottawa in Psychology and Gerontology and then also obtained my Ph.D. from uOttawa in Experimental Psychology with a focus in Cognitive Neuroscience. My current research is focused on early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and to predict future decline by combining neuropsychological tests with magnetic resonance imaging data. More specifically, I am studying the effects of subjective cognitive decline on brain structure and cognitive functioning.
