The Buckeye Brain Aging Lab (B-BAL) works with healthy young and older adults, as well as individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), medial temporal lobe amnesia, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Using neuroimaging techniques including structural and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), the B-BAL focuses on:
1. Studying the relationships between physical activity, fitness, cognition and the brain
2. Examining the neural correlates of cognition, with an emphasis in memory
3. Applying advanced MRI techniques to clinical populations with memory impairments
