Katie Wadden completed her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at Memorial University of Newfoundland where she began her research career studying the effect of acute hypoxia on muscle contracile properties. Katie continued research in the field of exercise physiology at Memorial University of Newfoundland and completed a Masters of Science in Kinesiology. Her research interest was directed towards the role of the stretch shortening cycling (SSC) during slow and rapid SSC movements. She studied neuromuscular responses via electromyography (EMG) following different forms of SSC training. Currently Katie is pursuing a PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. The aim of her research is to determine the role working memory plays in implicit motor learning. Her research will focus on studying the healthy brain through the use of TMS and brain imaging techniques during motor learning paradigms to further understand the role memory plays during the acquisition of motor skills.
