Dr Helen Nuttall wins the inaugural Rogue Resolutions Challenge

6 July 2016

Congratulations to Dr Helen Nuttall (Research Department of Speech, Hearing & Phonetic Sciences) who is the joint-winner of the inaugural Rogue Resolutions Challenge.

The Rogue Resolutions Challenge is a competition specifically designed for integrated multi-modal brain stimulation and brain imaging studies and for those who aspire to build a name for themselves in this field.

Helen's winning research proposal was one of over 30 entries, and will test how, in order to understand speech, the hearing centre of the brain works together with brain regions that control lip and tongue movements. Helen is particularly interested in how this relationship works in challenging listening conditions, such as background noise, and will use a combination of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Motor Evoked Potentials (MEP), and Electroencephalography (EEG) to test her hypothesis.

“I am absolutely delighted to have won the Rogue Resolutions Challenge, and the data collected as part of this proposal will be invaluable for preparing a grant application,” Helen said. “Thank you very much, Rogue Resolutions, for giving me this opportunity!”
