Andrea Protzner


Dr. Andrea Protzner is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Calgary.  She completed her PhD at the Rotman Research Institute, University of Toronto (2007), and completed her post-doctoral work at the University Health Network, University of Toronto (2011). Her research examines how experience changes the brain in the context of brain health and disease, through neuroimaging techniques (electroencephalography, magnetic resonance imaging) and behavioural experiments. Her recent work examines how aging influences the behavioural and neural consequences of short- and long-term learning in healthy adults. She also focuses on how major depressive disorder changes brain function, and how to select the most effective treatment for each individual.
