Ms Freya Stockman is a Research Officer and Clinical Trial Coordinator in the Interventional Neuropsychology research group at the Epworth Centre for Innovation in Mental Health (ECIMH), a joint Monash University and Epworth HealthCare clinical academic research centre. Since the beginning of 2018, Freya has coordinated two clinical trials: using theta-burst stimulation for the treatment of fibromyalgia (chronic pain symptoms); and using transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment (MCI). During this time, Freya has also developed portable brain stimulation treatment kits to enable patients to apply treatment at home. Key skills include large scale project management, high pressure recruitment, conducting clinical assessments, brain stimulation administration, collecting data, and educational community outreach. Freya is also a published author of an international book regarding treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Freya completed her Bachelor degree in Psychological Science (2016) and Graduate Diploma of Psychology (2017) at Deakin University. Her graduate thesis examined the relationship between mirror neuron activity and empathy using transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as assessing the relevance of intelligence in social inferencing as part of the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit (CNU).
