Dr Brenton Hordacre - TITLEHOLDER.

Brenton Hordacre is an NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow working with the Body in Mind Research group at the University of South Australia. His research is focused on understanding and improving stroke recovery. Using state-of-the-art neurophysiological techniques, Brenton is investigating the role of cortical connectivity in stroke recovery and how different interventions can optimise the connectivity profile for best recovery. He has expertise in both non-invasive brain stimulation and electroencephalography (EEG) to understand and investigate brain function.

Brenton has published over 20 peer-reviewed journal articles and presented at over 20 International and National conferences, including multiple invited plenary sessions and keynote presentations. He has been awarded over $600,000 in research funds and currently holds editorial board positions on two International physiotherapy journals.

Prior to his current appointment, Brenton completed both a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (University of South Australia, 2010) and a PhD titled 'Novel Assessments of Gait and Mobility Function in Transtibial Amputees' (Flinders University, 2014). After completion of his PhD, Brenton was employed at the University of Adelaide (2014-2017) as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. His work was primarily focused on an NHMRC funded project titled 'Characterising post-stroke cortical plasticity in humans - identifying a critical window for rehabilitation'.

Brenton continues to maintain a clinical position at the Repatriation General Hospital as a Senior Physiotherapist. He is also actively involved in the Australian Physiotherapy Association, and currently holds a position on the APA – SA Branch Council.
