Focusing on novel interventions for cognitive, emotional, and brain health

The Cognitive Neuroscience / Clinical Neuropsychology Laboratory examines neural systems underlying cognitive, emotional, and motivational changes  in healthy aging and disease.  We use state of the art methodologies (ERP, MRI/MRS, noninvasive brain stimulation) to fine tune and evaluate the potential of novel interventions for improving brain health.  We study normal aging and age-related conditions, like Parkinson disease, mild cognitive impairment, and early dementia. Our overarching goal is to improve the lives of our patients and their loved ones. We invite all to be partners in this mission.
