Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group
Research period: March 1, 2017, to February 28, 2023.
Housed within the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, the Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group (LNDG) seeks to understand how and why the human brain fluctuates so markedly from moment to moment. In particular, we examine brain signal variability and dynamics in relation to six core research foci (see below): lifespan development, cognition, neuromodulation, structural/functional connectivity, transcranial stimulation, and methods/modelling. Accordingly, we use statistical methods that allow for the examination of brain signal variability across multiple levels of analysis. The LNDG is graciously supported by the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, the Center for Lifespan Psychology at the MPI for Human Development, and by an Emmy Noether grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG).
