Degree: Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience
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.
- neuropsychological analyses
- functional MRI: resting-state analyses (Independent Component Analysis; ICA)
- structural MRI: surface-based analyses (gyrification)
