    Benefits and Mechanisms of Adaptation for Essential Tremor Patients Performing Resistance Training

    We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a Honours or Masters degree in health, exercise or sport science, physiotherapy, neuroscience or similar areas of study to undertake a 3-year PhD scholarship valued at up to $AUS30,000 per year within the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine at Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia. Some experience with essential tremor patients or other movement disorders would be advantageous but not essential.  The intended project seeks to improve the health and quality of life of individuals with essential tremor via the use of resistance training.  Specifically, this PhD aims to extend our recently published preliminary work on the benefits of resistance training for individuals with essential tremor, and identify the CNS mechanisms associated with resistance training that may cause improvements in movement control. This study will be the first to examine the effects of RT on ET patients by combining real-world assessments of manual dexterity with detailed assessments of neuromotor function.
