Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Shelley Duncan is a senior research fellow specialising in cognitive and behavioural neuroscience. She is interested in employing a multidisciplinary approach in the investigation of the relationship between cognitive and physical function. This also involves multimodal methodological designs incorporating mobile brain imaging, ambulatory ECG and motion capture systems. Shelley is specifically interested in the evaluation of the impact and dynamics associated with aging and the influence of neurological diseases, namely Parkinson’s disease. She was placed in the top 10 internationally for her paper "Validation of a multidirectional locomotive dual-task paradigm to evaluate task-related differences in event-related electro-cortical activity" in the 2020 Brain Products Mobile Brain Imaging Awards.


Mind-Body Connections Research Group Founder 

The relationship between mind and body is a dynamic and complex topic of interest that requires a multidisciplinary approach. Our Research Group exists to explore these connections. We often take the approach of evaluating varying aspects of human function in isolation, such as how muscles work and the underpinnings of cognition, but, how do these aspects of function relate, and how do they affect what we see in behaviour. The group has expertise in the areas of:

  • Exercise physiology
  • Sport psychology
  • Health and exercise psychology
  • Nursing
  • Neuroscience
  • Psychophysiology
  • Biomechanics
