CCD Stakeholders' Workshop: Supporting Research Impacts

8 May 2015, Macquarie University, Sydney


This workshop, to be held at the Macquarie University node of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD), is a special opportunity to further develop and enhance collaborative links between CCD members and those who support the people whose lives are impacted by our Centre's research.

This year's workshop builds on last year's sharing of vision and will be comprised of a series of focused group sessions during which those with common interests will have the opportunity to share dedicated time to discuss and develop opportunities for mutually beneficial collaboration in support of research outcomes.

The focused group session topics for this year's workshop include:

  • Dementia, Old Age, Memory
  • Childhood Language Development, SLI, Bilingualism
  • Dyslexia and Learning to Read and Spell
  • Exploring New Technology: TMS, TDCS, Doppler, Emotiv
  • Mental Health
  • Hearing, Hearing Loss, and the Brain
  • Neurodevelopmental Disorders

During each focus group session, CCD research leaders will present research updates and facilitate discussion of planned and potential research directions, seeking input and assistance in identifying opportunities for support from stakeholders in attendance.

There will also be an opportunity to tour the CCD lab facilities and time for networking over lunch and drinks & canapés.
