Dr. Chapman started the ACELab when he joined the University of Alberta as an Assistant Professor in January, 2013. Before that, he was a post-doctoral fellow at UBC, working with Drs. Jim Enns, Todd Handy and Alan Kingstone. Before THAT, he was a graduate student at UWO, working with Dr. Mel Goodale. And BEFORE THAT, he was a UBC undergraduate, born and raised in the Fraser Valley (Go Canucks!).
Dr. Chapman is passionate about his science, and about his family – ask a few questions, and he’ll talk for hours, often very loudly. Although he never really knows how to answer the question, when asked by non-neuroscientists, “What do you do”? or “What are you?” the best answer he can give is to call himself a Movement and Decision-making Neuroscientist.
