We study the mechanisms that underlie age-related memory loss. To this end, we use behavioral and non-invasive brain stimulation to understand why, as we age, we experience problems to remember different types of information.
We investigate the mechanisms that support the brain changes that occur as a result of aging and the disease process as well as in response of other rehabilitative interventions involving exercise or non-invasive brain stimulation.
We explore how to design novel and more effective exercise interventions to improve mobility and cognition for non-disabled people but also for people with neurological conditions such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease.
We combine different interventions (e.g. exercise) and techniques (e.g. non-invasive brain stimulation) to design treatments for people that need to recover after stroke or need too slow down their physical and cognitive deterioration.
