Dr Aron Hill, BA(Hons), BSc, PhD

Position: Research Fellow, Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre

Aron Hill is a post-doctoral researcher within the Therapeutic Brain Stimulation team at MAPrc.

Aron completed an Honours degree at Monash University in 2012 where he used transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to explore the human mirror neuron system. He subsequently completed a PhD under the supervision of A/Prof. Kate Hoy, Dr Nigel Rogasch and Prof. Paul Fitzgerald where he used multi-modal neuroimaging techniques (EEG, TMS-EEG) to investigate the neurophysiological correlates of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) paradigms aimed at enhancing cognitive performance.   

Aron’s Current research focusses on studying the effects of plasticity-inducing brain stimulation protocols including tDCS, transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) and intermittent theta-burst stimulation (iTBS) within both healthy and clinical cohorts. Aron is particularly interested in using these techniques to better understand the neurobiological processes underlying cognition.
