  • Faculty of Health Sciences

  • Nat Sch Exercise Science

  • Dr Michael Cole

    Dr Michael Cole is a Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience and Motor Control within the School of Exercise Science. Michael has an extensive background in the fields of biomechanics and exercise science, with specific research interests in the areas of neuroscience and sports and clinical biomechanics.

    In 2011, Michael was awarded an Early Career Researcher Fellowship from the National Health & Medical Research Council to carry out a project aimed at improving insight into potential neuromuscular deficits that contribute to poor postural control and falls in people with Parkinson's disease. Currently, Michael's other research focuses on i) the efficacy of Deep Brain Stimulation therapy for gait and balance disorders in people with Parkinson's disease; ii) evaluating the benefits of non-invasive therapies for people with Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis; and iii) evaluating the safety of common interventions for gait and balance disorders in people with neurological impairments.
