Angeline De Leon

Graduate Student

Currently, I am a third year graduate student in clinical psychology at the Department of Psychology at The Ohio State University. I am pursuing a doctoral degree in psychology with a minor in statistics and a concentration in neuroscience under the supervision of Dr. Ruchika Shaurya Prakash. My research has broadly focused on understanding general neurocognitive functioning in the elderly, with a specific aim of enhancing cognitive control through the application of multi-modal training regimens in this population. More specifically, my work involves investigating the dynamic functional neuroarchitecture of the aging brain, its implications for behavior and other mental processes, and the design and implementation of viable, efficacious interventions capable of altering both the functional and structural organization of the brain. My current work utilizes both task-based and resting-state investigations of the aging brain and focuses on understanding brain function from a networks analysis perspective. In these overarching themes of research, neuroimaging, particularly, fMRI, plays a driving, integral role in my work. In the future, I hope to enter into academia and continue this work as a full-time researcher in the field of clinical neuroscience.
