Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Cognitive Neuropsychology (ref no 2014/6945)
The main objective is to gain knowledge about why some people maintain their cognitive abilities in old age while others decline. Evidence is mounting that Alzheimer-vulnerable neural systems are highly susceptible to a number of different factors in aging, with some being disease related while others are not. Here, we aim to identify fundamental mechanisms causing these systems to decline also in non-demented elderly. An important part of the study is to collect and analyze brain imaging data (structural and functional MRI; PET), cognitive and neuropsychological tests, as well as measures of life-style and health-related factors.
