Our research aims at improving cognitive wellbeing in an aging population. With the world's population aging at an unprecedented rate, it is now crucial (i) to understand fundamental mechanisms of cognitive aging under naturalistic conditions, (ii) to establish novel clinical assessment tools, and (iii) to develop interventions that help maintain people’s independence. To achieve these ambitious goals, we employ a unique combination of cutting-edge neuroscience and behavioural methods.
