harry2Harry is currently undertaking a PhD with the Regenerative Neuroscience Group. He received a Bachelor of Science (Neuroscience) from the University of Sydney in 2011, and later completed a Masters of Brain and Mind Sciences Program, at the Brain and Mind Research Institute. Harry has a strong interest in Cognitive Training (CT), and ultimately hopes to see CT implemented in clinical settings to treat cognitive deficits in various neurological diseases.

Harry is involved in numerous projects within the RNG, most of which revolve around neuroplasticity in the ageing population. His primary project involves assessing the efficacy of two schedules of CT in elderly individuals who attend daycare centres.

Harry enjoys playing rugby, and spends his spare time training in the gym or keeping fit and active outdoors. He hopes to combine his passions of sport and neuroscience in implementing CT to firstly enhance mental performance in athletes, but more importantly to manage and treat cognitive deficits following concussion and traumatic brain injury.
