Hello all,

We are recruiting MSc and PhD students for a funded MEG study looking at neuronal connectivity and stroke recovery. Students will have the opportunity to undergo research through the Depts of Kinesiology or Psychology/Neuroscience at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

This research project will capitalize on the spatiotemporal resolution of MEG to examine changes in connectivity within the sensorimotor network of individuals post-stroke. Specifically, the goal of this research is to ‘pave the road to post-stroke rehabilitation’. Identifying the ‘normal’ sensorimotor network and establishing the relationship between network re-organization and functional recovery will permit the development and implementation of treatments to direct brain recovery. With regard to the proposed research project, and in groups of non-disabled controls and patients post-stroke, our objectives include:

1. To establish the connectivity pattern of the ‘normal’ sensorimotor network and demonstrate the ability to detect changes within the network using an established motor learning paradigm
2. Using clinical measures of upper limb function, we will establish the relationship between the pattern of sensorimotor network connectivity and functional recovery in well and poorly recovered patients
