Natalie Osborne completed a Bachelor of Science (Honours in Biomedical Sciences) at the University of Guelph, and a Master’s degree in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience at Western University under the supervision of Dr. Adrian Owen. Her MSc project used fMRI to investigate real and imagined responses to commands in healthy individuals and patients with disorders of consciousness. Now entering the 2nd year of her PhD in the lab of Dr. Karen Davis at the Krembil Research Institute, her research is investigating the brain and behavioural characteristics of pain in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. She is particularly interested in combining neuroimaging (fMRI & MEG) and psychophysical techniques to explore the role of central pain processing and pain modulation systems in carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as sex differences in the disease’s prevalence and symptoms.
