 Research and Expertise
Research at the Center of Brain Health
Brain scientists at the Center for BrainHealth use diverse, state-of-the-art technologies to elucidate how brain networks can be strengthened and reconnected, including:
  1. Electroencephalography (EEG) to record the brain's electrical rhythms during cognitive task performance;
  2. Functional MRI (fMRI) data to measure brain blood flow during cognitive tasks, an indicator of brain activity;
  3. Brain morphometrics to measure size and shape differences of brain regions to millimeter accuracy.

Pivotal questions being investigated by BrainHealth team:
  • Can brain function be strengthened for the Boomer generation?
  • What impact do medications have on brain function during learning in ADHD?
  • Does cognitive stimulation boost the effects of drugs in dementia?
  • What brain biomarkers track brain recovery as a result of treatment?
  • Can virtual social computer-based learning programs repair the dysfunctional brain networks in autism and schizophrenia?
  • What are the brain networks underlying reasoning abilities?
  • Are educational practices compatible with how the brain best learns?
  • How can we identify learning style differences to guide education?
  • Can children and adults be trained to use strategies to help their brain function more efficiently?
  • Can mental functioning rebound from cognitive loss after insults from anesthesia, chemotherapy or stress?
  • What is the role of mental and physical exercise in brain health?
