UAD members headed off to Seattle, Washington to present at the 2016 International Society for the Advancement of Respiratory Psychophysiology (ISARP) Conference October 7-9. Akila Rajappa and Dr. Michelle Troche, alongside Drs. Alexandra E. Brandimore, Karen Hegland, and Paul Davenport, presented their research, titled "The Influence of Aging and Parkinson's Disease on the Perception of Cough Stimuli."

Dr. Sarah Perry presented two posters during the poster session. The first, written with Dr. Maggie-Lee Huckabee from the University of Canterbury, was titled "Does diurnal variation in cough reflex testing exist in healthy young adults?" The second was called "The relationship between oral bacteria, cough reflex sensitivity and aspiration pneumonia in patients with acute stroke," and was written by Drs. Sarah Perry, Geoff Tompkins, and Maggie-Lee Huckabee.

According to their website, ISARP's mission is to promote and advance knowledge of the interrelationships between psychological and physiological aspects of respiration in research and application. Dr. Michelle Troche is an active member of ISARP, serving as Secretary-Treasurer on the board.
