Public Forum - Ageing and Brain Imaging

February 20, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Public Forum - Ageing and Brain Imaging

The Priority Research Centre for Stroke and Brain Injury presents a public forum discussing ageing and brain imaging by research leaders.

Professor Monica Fabiani

Taking the pulse of ageing: Cognition, fitness and cerebrovascular health

Monica Fabiani's research interests are in the cognitive neuroscience of human memory and ageing, as well as in the development of tools for the non-invasive mapping of human brain function. As is typical of the cognitive neuroscience approach, her research involves the integration of data from different domains, including behavioral responses, neuropsychological tests, and brain anatomy and function.

Professor Gabriele Gratton

A window into the the working brain: What can brain imaging tell us about the human mind?

Gabriele Gratton's interests are in cognitive neuroscience, specifically in the basic organisation (spatial, temporal, and functional) of elementary cognitive processes such as those involved in sensory and working memory, attention, motor preparation, and strategy selection. Gratton has been focusing on the application of functional brain imaging methods to the study of these processes in normal adult subjects using optical, electrophysiological and hemodynamic techniques.

No RSVP required. Light refreshments provided.
