Equipment & Techniques
My research focuses on cognitive representations in visual short-term memory, perception, attention, imagery and task execution. I am interested in their relationships, capacity limits, and neural substrates. I use a combination of fMRI, MEG/EEG, intracranial recordings, and behavioural tasks in healthy adults and aging populations.
Reduced responsiveness of the multiple demand network partially mediates decline in fluid intelligence during healthy human aging. This relationship is moderated by the variety of physical activities that a person does, suggesting that a varied active lifestyle may promote successful cognitive aging.
