Eye movement research could hold the key to early Parkinson’s diagnosis 

The way people with Parkinson’s use their eyes to complete simple tasks in both the real world and working at computers is being investigated by neuroscientists – and the findings could help early diagnosis and improve their quality of life.

Neuroscientists at the University of Lincoln have been investigating markers specific to Parkinson’s, including jerky movements of the eyes – termed “multi-stepping”.

Have you taken the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey yet ?

Have your say

The Postgraduate Research Survey (PRES) is a national survey of postgraduate research students’ satisfaction with their learning and supervision experience whilst at University, as well as the wider support they have received, and the environment of the University.

This survey gives you the chance to have your say about the quality of your supervision; the resources relating to your course; and the research community amongst other things.  It will also ask you about your motivations for studying, and your professional development.

As a postgraduate research student, completing this short survey will provide helpful feedback to the University of Lincoln, which will be used to help to improve its provision for postgraduate research students for years to come. You also have the option to be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 or one of two £50 prizes.

The survey will run from week commencing the 20th March 2017. An invitation email will be sent providing a link to complete your survey and have your say!
