Aron Hill

Aron is undertaking his PhD within the Cognitive Neurotechnology Research Group at the MAPrc under the supervision of A/Prof Kate Hoy, Dr Nigel Rogasch and Prof Paul Fitzgerald. Aron’s research is aimed at utilising non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques to improve neuroplasticity-based cognitive performance. Aron is particularly interested in better understanding the behavioural and neurophysiological effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) through the use of brain imaging techniques (EEG, TMS-EEG) and neuropsychological tests.

Aron’s research also focuses on ways of optimising the clinical efficacy of tDCS delivery through the use of novel ‘high-definition’ (HD-tDCS) multi-electrode montages. Aron hopes that his research will help shed more light on the neurobiological foundations of cognitive enhancement and ultimately lead to better future treatment options for people suffering from psychiatric and neurological disorders.
