Study Summary

This study will determine (1) whether baseline inhibitory activity in the primary motor cortex can predict motor learning ability in individuals with cerebellar degeneration, and (2) whether modulating primary motor cortex activity with non-invasive brain stimulation alters motor learning ability in this population.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
