Field of research:

Structural and functional organization of the aging brain in relation to cognitive functions:
Normal aging is accompanied by cognitive performance decline as well as structural and functional brain changes. However, there is a high interindividual variability with respect to these age-related changes, especially within later decades of life. Therefore, I investigate the relation between brain structure and function and cognitive performance in older adults.

Research Methods:

  • neuropsychological analyses
  • functional MRI: resting-state analyses (Independent Component Analysis; ICA)
  • structural MRI: surface-based analyses (gyrification)
