Cristina Rubino completed her BSc in Biology at York University and her MSc in Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia. Her graduate work with Dr. Jason Barton investigated the role of eye-movement training in patient populations with homonymous hemianopia. In the Brain Behaviour Lab at UBC, Cristina is interested in using neurophysiology and structural and functional neuroimaging to investigate the mechanisms associated with learning-dependent changes in stroke patients. Cristina plans to investigate the role of eye-movements during upper-extremity motor learning in healthy and stroke populations. Ultimately, her goal is to contribute to neurorehabilitation research and devise tools to improve the quality of life for those living with mobility and motor control limitations from stroke. Outside the lab, Cristina likes to explore new places through road biking, hiking, snowboarding, and playing Ultimate Frisbee.
