UNB Psychology


The Lab has delivered many successful presentations across the globe on research that includes, but is not limited to, verbal deception and truth telling in children and youth, examining the ecology of strong children, adolescents and older adults in relation to culture and context, and emergent literacy. For more information on the specific research the Lab conducts, please visit this page here.

The Lab appreciates the participation of many children, adolescents, and adults that have made testing hypotheses and collecting data enjoyable and worthwhile. Without these participants, we would not have been able to achieve the success we have.

When not too busy, Dr. Cameron and her research assistants take the time to enjoy one another's company at potluck brunches. There is a lot of work involved in the Lab, but the research team is always ready to work hard, work together, and have fun.

Joining her are Rodrigo (centre), a former Mitacs student whom she met whilst studying in Canada; and Debby (right), a new friend from South Africa whom they had just met and spent nearly the entirety of the conference together. Of the conference Ale says, "Well, this trip was great! And I also love this picture. I guess it shows how conferences are not just about watching lectures, but also making connections."
