The brain and behaviour team investigate the interplay of brain structure and function as well as neurobiological mechanisms and behaviour during human life span. Parallel to research on normal behaviour, memory and cognitive performance, the pursuits aim to improving understanding of biological underpinnings for several common health issues, such as general well-being, mental health and dementia.
Co-ordinator: Professor Laura Mickes
