Ms Freya Stockman is a Study Coordinator and Research Assistant in the Therapeutic Brain Stimulation division of MAPrc. Freya finished a Bachelor degree in Psychological Science in 2016 as well as a Graduate Diploma of Psychology in 2017, both of which were completed at Deakin University. Her graduate research examined the relationship between mirror neuron activity and empathy using transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as assessing the relevance of intelligence in social inferencing. She then worked as a Research Assistant at Deakin University in the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit (CNU) where she gained relevant experience handling neuro lab equipment. Freya joined MAPrc in 2018 where she coordinates two clinical trials: using theta-burst stimulation for the treatment of fibromyalgia (chronic pain symptoms) and using transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Her weekly tasks include applying brain stimulation, recording brain activity using an electroencephalogram (EEG), booking treatments and liaising with participants. Freya hopes to complete further postgraduate study in her pursuit of a career in clinical psychology.
