Student funding for exercise study

Great news yesterday from the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation – MSc student Emily Rogers has received funding to support her work examining the effect of exercise on neuroplasticity. Emily’s work will look at how high intensity exercise (interval training) affects the excitability of the brain. The long-term goal is to determine how effective this intervention may be for helping to prime the brain prior to neurorehabilitation. Thanks to the NSHRF for their ongoing support of our work and of health research in the province of Nova Scotia.
