Ronan Denyer is a PhD student in the Graduate Program in Neuroscience. Ronan completed his Bachelor’s degree at Trinity College Dublin, receiving First Class Honors in Psychology. While studying at TCD Ronan worked with Dr. Richard Carson investigating the neurophysiological basis of cross education of motor function using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Ronan also spent some time with Dr. Kathleen Friel at the Burke Rehabilitation Institute in New York, investigating the efficacy of bimanual therapy in kids with cerebral palsy. Dr. Lara Boyd’s work investigating the neurobiology of motor learning using both neurophysiological and imaging techniques, and in particular her focus on translating findings into applications to improve the quality of life of individuals with stroke, is what attracted Ronan to Canada, UBC and the Brain Behaviour Lab.
