Lab Director

Steve Lindsay, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria

Steve is a cognitive psychologist. Most of his research explores human memory. He is especially interested in determinants of the subjective experience of remembering, source monitoring (the inferential processes by which people identify the origins of mental events such as memories), and the application of theories concerning these processes to everyday memory phenomena (e.g., eyewitness evidence). He collaborates with several terrific psychologists, and has had the great pleasure of working with many wonderful students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Check out his Google Scholar profile. He was Editor in Chief of Psychological Science, the flagship journal of the Association for Psychological Science from 2015 through 2019.  Check out his editorials, Replication in Psychological Science and Sharing Data and Materials in Psychological Science. If you want to flatter him with an honorific, his preference is “Professor,” but otherwise “Steve” is OK.  Pronouns are he/him/his. Curriculum Vitae For further inquiries email
