About Heather Palmer, Founder of Maximum Capacity Back to Top of Page 

Heather Palmer, Founder of Maximum Capacity
Heather Palmer, Founder of Maximum Capacity
Maximum Capacity is the brainchild of Heather Palmer, PhD, who has over 20 years of scientific and clinical experience in the area of brain-behaviour relationships. She obtained her doctorate from the University of New South Wales, Australia, and carried out a postdoctoral fellowship in neurocognitive rehabilitation at the Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest. This fellowship resulted in a series of 5 papers which have been published in the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society (2007).

Her original interest in this field of research stemmed from a life-long respect and admiration for the elderly. She was struck by the fact that although seniors are leading longer, healthier, more active lives, they are not always able to enjoy this time due to problems associated with cognitive deterioration.

After researching, developing and implementing clinical studies relating to cognitive rehabilitation, Heather now devotes her time to applying what is being learned through science to help all people, not just seniors, improve the way they think, feel and function.
