LCBC’s research goal is to understand brain and cognition. How does brain and cognition change throughout the entire lifespan, and how we can optimise them. We aim to explain, predict, and promote cognitive function from birth to old age.
A key investigation is the great variation in brain and cognition within and across individuals. We believe this is best studied using longitudinal studies. These are studies that follow people over many years. We also look at how brain and cognition is affected by risk factors and transitions into clinical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
