With 2020 came an onset of chaos and uncontrollable events, many of which will stick with us for decades to come.  Among the mess of a global pandemic some people at NIMBAL will remember 2020 for different (hopefully more positive) reasons! Here are some of the notable milestones that a few of our graduate students have experienced:

Congratulations to Mark Laylor (PhD candidate)!

Last week Mark Laylor won "Best Overall Presentation" for the Neuroscience 3-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. In the 3MT competition, Mark presented his doctoral research, "Stimulating stability: The brain and balance control", in 3 minutes and using a single slide!

We are working on getting a recording of this presentation and will upload when available! Well done Mark and all other competitors!

From the lab, to the community

The Tool Kit for Assessing Human Balance and Mobility, developed by Dr. McIlroy, his colleagues, and the NiMBaL lab has been awarded funds for further testing and development.

Dr. McIlroy is the winner of the prestigious University of Waterloo Award of Excellence in Graduate Supervision for 2016-2017. The award, established by the Graduate Studies Office and the Graduate Student Association, recognizes exemplary faculty members who have demonstrated excellence in graduate student supervision.

Jessy successfully defended her Doctoral thesis on October 4th, 2016. Jessy's thesis, "Cortical activations underlying human bipedal balance control" will help extend the understanding of cortical control of balance that may help improve models of cortical contributions to balance control.
