NAMEABOUTEMAIL
Leon Booth (Honours student)Leon is a fourth-year Psychology student supervised by Dr Andrea Loftus. Leon’s research examines the impact of transcranial direct-current stimulation over dorsal-lateral pre-frontal cortex on fine motor control in healthy older adults. If you are interested in Leon’s research visit the current research pages of this website.
Natalie Campbell (Masters of Counselling)Natalie is completing her Masters (Counselling) research in the Curtin Neuroscience Research Lab under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus and Dr Peta Dzidic. Natalie’s research examines the impact of tDCS on memory in healthy ageing and explores subjective experiences of memory decline. If you are interested in finding out more about Natalie’s research, please visit the current research pages of this website.

Emily CortiEmily completed her honours research at Curtin’s Neuroscience Research Laboratory with ParkC in 2013, under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus and Associate Professor Natalie Gasson. Emily’s research examined the relationship between personality, actual memory and perceived memory in those affected by Parkinson’s Disease.
Emily is continuing her research career as a PhD student in the lab under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus and Associate Professor Natalie Gasson. Emily’s research examines if brain stimulation can be used to help restore normal neuronal activity in people with chronic lower back pain. If you are interested in Emily’s PhD research, please visit the current research section of this website.

Elise DuncanElise is completing her Masters (Clinical) research in the Curtin Neuroscience Research Lab with ParkC. Elise’s research examines the relationship between executive functioning, quality of life and coping strategies in those affected by Parkinson’s Disease. Elise’s thesis is available here.
Paul Evans (PhD student)Paul completed his honours research Curtin’s Neuroscience Research Laboratory in 2013 under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus. Paul’s research examined the impact of transcranial direct-current stimulation over dorsal-lateral pre-frontal cortex on executive functioning in healthy older adults.
Paul’s thesis is available here, or visit the current research pages of this website. Paul is continuing his research career as a PhD student in the lab under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus and Dr Andrew Lavender. Paul’s research examines the perception of time and timing in healthy older adults and those with Parkinson’s Disease.

Richelle Jarvis-Spinks (Honours student)Richelle is a fourth-year physiotherapy student supervised by Dr Andrew Lavender. Richelle is conducting an honours research project examining the influence of a short period of moderate aerobic exercise on the adaptability of the motor cortex in healthy older adults. Richelle is using transcranial magnetic stimulation to assess cortical change post-exercise. If you are interested in finding out more about Richelle’s research visit the current research pages of this website.
Blake Lawrence (PhD student)Blake completed his honours research at Curtin’s Neuroscience Research Laboratory with ParkC in 2013, under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus and Associate Professor Natalie Gasson. Blake’s research examined the relationship between depression, activities of daily living and quality of life in people with Parkinson’s Disease.
Blake has now commenced a PhD. Blake is continuing his research career as a PhD student in the laboratory under the supervision of Dr Andrea Loftus and Associate Professor Natalie Gasson. Blake’s research examines cognition in Parkinson’s Disease.

Charlotte Poon (Honours student)Charlotte is a fourth-year physiotherapy student supervised by Dr Andrew Lavender. Charlotte’s honours project focuses on the effect of moderate aerobic exercise on the ability of the motor cortex to adapt, which is indicative of learning. Charlotte is using transcranial magnetic stimulation to determine the impact of exercise. If you are interested in finding out more about Charlotte’s research visit the current research pages of this website.
