In older adults, changes in brain structure and function are associated with declines in…

ABOUT THE fNIM LAB

Research programs in our laboratory use electrophysiological (EEG & ERP), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) methods to investigate a variety of aspects of human memory.

We are mainly interested in the cognitive and neural bases of memory encoding and retrieval, as well as how and why memory function differs as a result of healthy aging or neurological disease.
