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). One of the research themes of the B-BAL is to examine variables that attenuate age-related cognitive and neural decline and contribute to successful aging. We work with sedentary adults as well as masters level athletes. 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
