Stress, stroke, emotion, dementia, ideas - all stemming from our brains, the incredible organ that makes us who we are. Join our hosted panel of researchers as we journey around the grey matter and discover the neurological and emotional health in today's society.

Stress After Stroke: Does it Affect Recovery?

Dr Madeleine Hinwood (Research academic - psychiatric epidemiology)
People recovering from stroke report high levels of stress. We'll talk about the significance of this and look at how chronic stress can both impede brain repair processes and reduce engagement with rehabilitation services.

Dr Hinwood completed her PhD in a Neuroscience lab in 2013, and a Master of Clinical Epidemiology in 2017. She is working on bringing what we know about the effects of stress on the brain from the lab into clinical research.

Do Buildings Affect your Emotions?

Isabella Bower (PhD candidate - environmental psychology)
Does the space you're in affect your mood? If so, how? Hear about research investigating whether design characteristics of interior built environments modulate neural networks involved in emotion regulation. Imagine the potential!

Isabella is a PhD candidate and Research Outputs Coordinator. She was awarded the inaugural John Eberhard Fellowship (Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture), and won the Deakin University Three-Minute Thesis competition.

Dementia – In our Genes or the Way we Live?

Dr Luke Whiley (Senior Lecturer - healthy ageing & dementia)
Dementias such as Alzheimer's disease are on the rise, but there is much we don't know about them. Why does dementia affect certain individuals, while others age without signs or symptoms? We'll ask, 'Is it in our genes or due to lifestyle?'

Dr Whiley is a Researcher at Murdoch University. He researches the complex relationship between our genes and environment using a technique called metabolic phenotyping to identify changes in our metabolism that can influence our health.
