My research examines how individual differences in lifetime exposures, such as cognitive, social, physical, and leisure activities, influence the relationships between age, brain structure, brain function, and cognitive performance. Differences in these lifestyle exposures all influence how the brain’s activity responds to cognitive demands. In addition, variability in brain activity results from differences in cognitive strategies, physiology, and age.
