Dr. Steeves served as the interim Director of the York MRI Facility in 2014-15 and was subsequently appointed Business Director. Her research examines how the brain adapts to changes in sensory input with the loss of one eye or to direct brain damage. She uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to reverse engineer the brain. Her lab uses TMS to transiently disrupt discrete nodes within the brain and observe changes in behaviour and brain activity.

Joy is the MRI Technologist for the 3T Siemens Tim Trio MRI scanner at the York MRI Facility. She has been working in MRI research for 10 years and continues to be amazed by the this non-invasive technology that allows us to peer into ourselves, both into our bodies and our minds (through fMRI). Joy is also the Safety Officer for the facility, and holds training sessions on a regular basis at the facility. Please contact Joy to sign up for a training session or to book time on the scanner.
