Medicine & Health
School of Population Health

Dr Menant is a Senior Research Scientist, Lead of Cognition and Mobiity Studies within the Falls, Balance and Injury Research Centre at NeuRA.  She has a background in exercise science and completed a PhD in applied physiology / biomechanics at UNSW (School of Population Health) in 2008.

She is the Communication Manager of the Australia New-Zealand Fall Prevention Society where she sits on the Executive Board. She is also a member of the Scientific Committee of the International Society for Posture & Gait.

Research Interests:

Her research in ageing and clinical groups with balance impairments combines mechanistic work, longitudinal studies and randomised controlled trials to investigate the control of balance and gait, identify risk factors for falls and mobility decline and develop interventions to improve health outcomes.

Broad Research Areas:
Ageing, Physiology, Neuroscience, Gerontology - Geriatrics, Biomechanics

Qualifications:
BSc Hons, PhD

Specific Research Keywords:
Fall prevention, Sensory Mechanisms, Balance, Biomechanics, Human Movement and Sensation, Mobility, Ageing, Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy.

My current research projects include:

- Cognitive-motor step training to reduce chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) symptoms in cancer survivors : multisite randomised controlled trial.

- Lower limb muscle contributions to gait patterns in people with Multiple Sclerosis.

- Exploring neural mechanisms for why older people with fear of falling are at increased risk of falls

-Determining optimal balance and gait assessments for predicting falls in community-dwelling older people

- Mechanistic studies investigating cortical activity during balance, stepping and walking using functional near-infrared spectroscopy in ageing, fall risk and Parkinson’s Disease

- Understanding obstructive sleep apnoea-related cerebellar degeneration for dementia and fall risk prevention
