Congratulations to Nole for successfully defending his PhD on May 11, 2018. If that’s not enough, he is now attending medical school at UWO.
Original Project: My PhD, currently being completed under Dr. Penny MacDonald (PI) and Dr. Adrian Owen, is centred on elucidating the cognitive profile of Parkinson’s disease by understanding functions performed by the ventral and dorsal striatum using behavioural and neuroimaging techniques. My MSc, also completed in Dr. Penny MacDonald’s lab, investigated the neural correlates of stimulus-response learning using functional magnetic resonance imaging and Parkinson’s disease. My research interests include the pathophysiology of brain diseases and mental illnesses and using neuroimaging techniques as a diagnostic aid.
