On November 20-21 HALO scientists Drs. Gary Goldfield, Patricia Longmuir, Veronica Poitras and Mark Tremblay participated in a national strategic planning event on Physical Activity and Brain Development at The Abilities Centre in Whitby, Ontario. The event, spearheaded by NeuroDevNet, brought together neuroscience and exercise science researchers, practitioners and stakeholders to discuss how cross-disciplinary research and practice can be enhanced moving forward. A “White Paper” is being prepared as a summary and legacy of the event.
