Kathleen (Katie) Peters
Katie is currently pursuing her PhD looking at how cognitive fatigue impacts motor preparation and response initiation. Her research involves the use of a startling acoustic stimulus, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and tDCS.
Katie was awarded an NSERC CGS-D scholarship in 2022

Anthony N. Carlsen, PhD (Tony)
Lab Director / PI
Tony Carlsen is an Associate Professor and the director and lead investigator of the NeuroMotor Behaviour Lab 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.
Alex completed her MSc looking at differences in reaction time and preparatory activation as a result of varying accuracy requirements.

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
Neil M. Drummond
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.
