And another (MSc that is…)!

Lab member Monica MacDonald has followed closely on the heals of Jack’s defense, successfully defending her own thesis this past week. Monica’s thesis explored the effect of aerobic fitness on brain excitability. Her results showed that prior aerobic fitness doesn’t seem to affect brain excitability. Stay tuned for a publication!

Special congratulations are in order for Monica as well – in addition to finishing her MSc thesis, Monica ALSO completed her clinical MSc (Physiotherapy) this past week. In fact, Monica is the first graduate of the School of Physiotherapy’s Joint Program, in which students complete research and clinical MSc degrees concurrently. Thanks for blazing the trail Monica!
