In the Healthy Brain Aging Lab, we study metabolic and vascular health factors that shape neural and cognitive changes across the lifespan. We use advanced noninvasive neuroimaging techniques, cognitive assessments, physiological markers, and genetics to evaluate individual differences in the course of aging, including both risk (e.g., metabolic syndrome) and protective (e.g., aerobic exercise) health factors.
We are affiliated with the Department of Psychology, the Institute of Gerontology, and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences at Wayne State University and are located in the Integrative Biosciences building.
