About

Dr. Steven Barnes is Senior Instructor and Associate Head of Undergraduate Affairs in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Barnes is particularly well known for his work related to student mental health and wellbeing. He is co-founder of the kaleidoscope, a peer-run support group for individuals experiencing mental health issues. He is also involved in several ongoing projects aimed at improving the mental wellbeing of students by examining the relationship between learning environments and mental health.

He has two ongoing projects that involve the development of a novel learning technology:

  • Principal Investigator for a 3-year Large TLEF related to the development of a novel learning technology.
  • Co-Investigator on a 5-year SSHRC-CIHR Partnership grant: TYDE

Barnes is also an accomplished artist—his current art practice is centred around the production of new media pieces that aim to inspire dialogue on the ways we think about and use modern technologies. He is co-author of the 10th edition of a best-selling textbook on Behavioural Neuroscience, Biopsychology 10th Edition (Pearson).


Research

Research interests include psychological disorders (especially bipolar disorder), epilepsy, long term potentiation and metaplasticity, new media and other artistic practices, artist-scientist collaborations, teaching of psychology, learning technologies development, and science writing.
