CIHR Operating Grant Awarded

The Centre for Collaborative Research on Hoarding has been awarded a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to study the cognitive underpinnings of key features of hoarding: excessive valuing of objects and extreme disorganization of the home. The research team for this 5-year project includes Sheila Woody (Principal Investigator), Nicholas Bogod, Mahesh Menon, Daniel Bartels, Todd Handy, and Grace Truong. This team draws from diverse areas of psychology – from clinical psychology to behavioural economics – to examine cognitive functions using multiple methodologies across a series of studies.
