Our main research goal is to understand the relationsip between brain structure and brain function in aging and disease. Specifically, the lab investigates populations of individuals to assess brain changes associated wtih age, cerebrovascular disease, and Alzheimer's Disease. Additional projects include the study of heritability of brain regions and abnormal white matter signals.
