Dr. Boyd is a Neuroscientist and Physical Therapist. At the Brain Behaviour Lab at UBC, she performs research designed to advance theoretical conceptualizations of how brain function relates to behaviour during learning. She is an expert in mapping how behaviours, environments and experiences affect brain health and learning, using techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging and non-invasive brain stimulation. To date this work has largely examined the impact of exercise and learning on neurobiology.
