My PhD project is focused on the objective and subjective measurement of fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis. My PhD is a collaboration between the Brighton and Sussex Medical School and the School of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Brighton.
I will be using neurophysiological assessment techniques such as electrical nerve stimulation and transcranial magnetic stimulation to measure fatigue. These techniques will be used alongside fMRI (arterial spin labeling). Combining these techniques will enable us to assess the development and profile of fatigue from the brain to the spinal cord, to the muscle. Perceptual measurements of fatigue will also be collected to create a holistic whole-body picture of how fatigue differs in people with MS to healthy controls.
My previous work has included the assessment of how deception of isometric exercise intensity affects performance and neuromuscular measurements of fatigue.
