Research Interests

Multi-modal MRI, anatomy, brain plasticity and ageing, the sensory systems, population neuroscience.
To combine the information obtained from multi-modal structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging as a tool to get insight into the biological processes of brain plasticity. The aim is to reveal how intrinsic and extrinsic factors relate to, and possibly affect, brain structure and function, by using longitudinal and cross-sectional observational and intervention studies across the life-span.

Research Groups
