      Anthony N. Carlsen, PhD (Tony)

      Lab Director / PI

      Tony Carlsen is an Associate Professor and the director and lead investigator of the Centre for NeuroMotor Behaviour at the University of Ottawa. After completing his PhD in Motor Control at UBC, he went on to work as a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University in Chicago. His main research interests include determining the brain structures and processes involved in preparation for movement in humans, and how modulating this activity can lead to improvements in people’s lives.

        Alexandra Leguerrier

        MSc Student

        Alex completed her MSc looking at differences in reaction time and preparatory activation as a result of varying accuracy requirements.

          Joelle Hajj

          MSc Student

          Joelle completed her MSc student investigating whether perceptual processing be altered at peak limb velocity of a goal-directed movement.

              Victoria Smith

              MSc Student

              Vikki finished her MSc thesis investigating the role of the primary motor cortex in the StartReact effect using transcranial magnetic stimulation.

                  Mike Kennefick

                  Previous MSc Student

                  Mike Kennefick completed his MSc under the supervision of Dr. Tony Carlsen in 2014. His thesis comprised two studies investigating the “Time course of corticospinal excitability in simple reaction time tasks” – one of which was published in 2014 in PLoS One. He is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of British Columbia Okanagan under Dr. Paul van Donkellar

                      Neil M. Drummond

                      PhD student

                      Dr. Neil Drummond completed his PhD in 2016. He completed his MSc under the supervision of Dr. Erin Cressman and Dr. Tony Carlsen at the University of Ottawa. Neil’s primary research interests include how the brain inhibits unwanted movement and how it regulates stopping behaviour. Neil uses techniques such as Startle, rTMS, and tDCS to investigate these questions.
