Welcome to the CogT Lab
Age-related cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, are major health challenges among aging populations. Maintaining cognitive and functional independence are critical for healthy aging. To serve such purposes, the CogT Lab invests in a mechanistic understanding of brain aging. These mechanisms inform our work on developing innovative interventions aimed at delaying the progression of Alzheimer's-related dementia and promoting successful cognitive aging.
