The lab is run by Dr. William Harvey, Associate Professor within the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education at McGill, who is passionate about driving forward the lab's mandate to:

  • Study of relationships between self-determination, self-regulation, recovery and physical activity in mental health
  • Understand the correlation of physical activity for people with and without psychiatric conditions
  • Pursue the ultra-specialized study of ADHD and physical activity correlates
  • Develop physical activity interventions for persons with ADHD across the lifespan
  • Train undergraduate and graduate students in clinical and research practices that promote active healthy lifestyles in mental health


Head2Core is also providing a free "Couch to 5K Run Program" for novice runners!
