Wendy is dedicated to clinical research, and in combination with her passion for writing and sharing stories including vital health and neuro-related information, Neuro Gist came to be. Her research interests are focused on enhancing the recovery and performance of those suffering from neurological diseases, most especially multiple sclerosis and stroke. She’s an advocate for educating the general public on health and neuroscience issues.
As clinical researcher in training at the Recovery and Performance Laboratory, her project focuses on linking the clinical features of Multiple Sclerosis to brain structure and function, and changes in arm and leg impairment among people with Multiple Sclerosis. The most fascinating aspect of her work is interacting with patients and observing how the research she’s involved in impacts their lives positively in real-time.
