Epidemiology of Brain Resilience to Aging

University of Pittsburgh eBRAIN Group

The eBRAIN research group coordinates and analyzes studies that focus on the interplay between brain integrity and function in a variety of neuroepidemiological studies. We apply brain imaging methods in population studies, study risk factors, utilize cognitive and mobility measures, characterize central & peripheral contributors to function.
