With an interest in neuro-rehabilitation, Dr Teo works specifically to further research into how non-invasive brain stimulation can help prepare the brain to maximise rehabilitation outcomes for patients affected by stroke.
He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition at Deakin University and his research includes focuses on:
— Effects of exercise on brain plasticity in healthy ageing and chronic neurological disorders;
— Effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on learning and cognition in stroke;
— Brain-computer interface robotic training for neuro-rehabilitation; and
— Effects of sleep deprivation and shift work on brain function.
Dr Teo’s research is working to identify optimal exercise parameters to maximise improvements in patients. Currently, Dr Teo’s project is testing the feasibility of an online rehabilitation platform.
