Dr Brodie Hand

ARC Grant-Funded Researcher (A)

School of Biomedicine

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am a teaching and research academic within the School of Biomedicine - The University of Adelaide. Currently, I am the course coordinator of Physiology IIA (2023), as well as a postdoctoral research associate within the Neurophysiology of Human Movement group. My research focuses on the neural mechanisms responsible for human movement and understanding how these may be influenced by ageing and exercise. I utilise various methods of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) to painlessly measure and modulate the brain’s control of skeletal muscles. Specifically, my work seeks to enhance plasticity-inducing NIBS interventions to improve human function (e.g., motor skill acquisition and retention).
