Bio: Rachael received her first degree, a Psychology BSc, from the University of Reading. Here she developed an interest in psychology, neuroscience, mathematics. Whilst at Reading, she volunteered for the student mental health charity Student Minds, and worked for a year as a research assistant, investigating ways to facilitate language recovery in those suffering with Aphasia. Now a PhD student on the Integrative Neuroscience course at Cardiff University, funded by the Wellcome Trust, she currently researches ‘neurovascular coupling’, and is interested in how it might be impaired in the disease Multiple Sclerosis. This involves measuring neural activity (using Magnetoencephalography) and the vascular response (using fMRI).
Oh yeah, and she’s a big fan of wombats.
