About us

Our goal is to understand brain and cognitive changes throughout the entire lifespan, and how we can optimize them. LCBC aims to explain, predict, and promote cognitive function from birth to old age. We believe the key is to investigate the enormous variation in brain and cognition at different ages, both within and across individuals, and how this is affected by risk factors and transcends into clinical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
