Does heading the football affect the brain?
Little is known about the consequences of repeated subconcussive head impact, actually very routine in sport. Sensitive brain measures from cognitive neuroscience may shed a light on what happens in the brain following such impacts. The multidisciplinary team of www.StirlingBrains.org has PhD opportunities on this topic starting shortly. Experience with TMS, EEG, and MRI/MRS neuroimaging is welcome.
The studentship will have an anticipated registration date of 1 October 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
