Guest Speaker: Professor Leeanne Carey
Professor Leeanne Carey is founding head of the Neurorehabilitation and Recovery research group in the Stroke Division, Florey Neuroscience Institutes, and is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. Her research program focuses on development of approaches to rehabilitation that are founded on theories of neuroplasticity and learning, and empirically tested for clinical and neuroanatomical outcomes using functional neuroimaging techniques. More recent research includes the impact of depression and cognition on stroke recovery and optimal targeting of rehabilitation post-stroke through novel brain imaging and biomarkers.
