Sonia recently completed her Masters in Neuroscience in the Brain Behavior
Laboratory at UBC hospital. Her research was focused on whether non-invasive brain stimulation may help individuals learn a new task after stroke, and how the sensory cortex in the brain is involved. She currently works as a member of the Pediatric Anesthesiology Research Team at the BC Children's Hospital, and as a Rehabilitation Care worker for individuals with acquired brain injury. In her spare time, Sonia can be found playing outside on the water or the snow, depending on the season.
Looking beyond the motor cortex : examining the potential of the primary sensory cortex as a target for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation after stroke.
