The study of the interaction between physical activity and the nervous system
Faculty who study Neuroscience and Behaviour are broadly interested in the structure and function of the nervous system, and the interactions among physical activity and psychological factors such as emotion, cognition and motivation.
Areas of specific focus include self-regulation, behaviour change, decision making, cognitive neuroscience, memory and attention, neural plasticity, brain function, mental health, motor behaviour and gender.
Research methods and techniques include transcranial magnetic stimulation, functional magnetic resonance imaging, electromyography, eletrcoencephalography, eye tracking, metabolic measurements and field-based research.
