Opportunities & Training

There are many ways to get involved with the research in the RehabNeuroLab. Graduate trainees with backgrounds in kinesiology, rehabilitation medicine, neuroscience, and mechanical and electrical engineering are often interested in our work. Trainees can work on advanced degrees in Kinesiology (MSc, PhD) and Neuroscience (PhD).

Graduate Studies

Trainees in the lab participate in a kind of "apprenticeship” approach to training. The mentonring approach allows students to initially work in the laboratory on ongoing research projects that are part of ongoing research projects. This provides the student with direct experience in the techniques of acquisition and analysis of neurophysiological data obtained in human experiments. Some students may then continue on some of these projects and make them their thesis work. Others may stream off from these projects into related topics that are of interest and which fit under my research agenda but which are not the main foci in the lab. The objective is to combine the interests of the trainees with the overarching objectives of the research program in the lab.

Post-Doctoral Fellows and Visiting Scientists

Many visiting scientists and post-doctoral research fellows have participated in the research at the RehabNeuroLab.

Undergraduate Research Experiences

Many undergraduates have worked in the lab on directed studies projects, honours theses, as co-op work term placements, or as volunteers. Many of these students make intial contact through their academic training in EPHE 380: Human Motor Control.
