Master Student

Research topic:

  • Cognitive aging
  • Executive functions

Methodological topics:

  • ALE meta analyses
  • Resting-state functional connectivity
  • Meta-analytic connectivity modeling (MACM)

The focus of my current research are age-related changes in executive functions. Through meta-analyses I identify regions affected by cognitive aging. With resting-state functional connectivity, meta-analytical connectivity modeling (MACM), and correlations with executive function scores I investigate the task-independent and task-dependent functional connectivity of each previously identified region.
