About

Dr Emma Ward is a lecturer in the College of Healthcare Sciences at James Cook University. She is currently coordinating PY4207: Neuroscience and the Biological Bases of Behaviour.

Dr Ward's research is primarily interested in brain stimulation techniques and neurolinguistics, with emphasis on how the brain processes and produces language. Her PhD thesis made important conclusions that inform our knowledge about the conceptual organisation of action words, as well as the associated brain structures involved in verb retrieval and production. 

In future research, Emma hopes to further elucidate how brain stimulation techniques, like transcranial magnetic stimualtion, can work in producing temporary and permanent brain changes for those undergoing treatment for brain damage.
