With its five-year funding programme, the DFG supports young scientists on their way to early scientific independence.
Douglas Garrett, a Senior Researcher within the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research and the Center for Lifespan Psychology, was awarded with an Emmy Noether Grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG). The Emmy Noether Program supports researchers in achieving independence at an early stage of their scientific careers via a five-year grant supporting their own independent research group. With his group (the Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group), Douglas Garrett aims to analyze the manner in which brain signal variability (so-called neural “noise”) declines upon aging, and whether this decline may drive aging-related cognitive deficits.
