Welcome to the website of the Brain Plasticity and Neuroimaging Laboratory. The Brain Plasticity and Neuroimaging Lab was established in May 2013. The lab’s mission is to understand brain plasticity mechanisms and human memory function from a cognitive neuroscience perspective. Research in the lab focuses on the medial temporal lobe memory system and modifiers of brain function and structure, such as lifestyle factors, psychosocial factors, and aging. Most recently, research in the lab has focused on cardio-respiratory fitness and aerobic exercise on memory function across the lifespan.
