As another convocation season passes, throngs of newly minted graduates, armed with their diplomas, eagerly trek out seeking to find rewarding vocations where they can make an impact. Not all, however, truly understand the difference between what they’ve learned in their classrooms and what the real world holds. As Assistant Professor and Chair of the Clinical Outreach Committee at McGill University’s School of Communication Sciences and Disorders (SCSD) in the Faculty of Medicine, Dr. Nicole Li-Jessen has set out to provide students with community outreach activities that simultaneously expose them to real-world clinical settings as one means of preparing them to enter the workplace.

Rapid eye movement sleep: keystone of memory formation

For decades, scientists have fiercely debated whether rapid eye movement (REM) sleep – the phase where dreams appear – is directly involved in memory formation.
