This presentation by Nathan Spreng will discuss cognitive changes that occur with advancing age as well as the brain changes underlying them. Nathan Spreng is an assistant professor and the director of the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition in the Department of Human Development at Cornell. His research examines large-scale brain network dynamics and their role in cognition. Currently, he is investigating the link between memory, cognitive control, and social cognition. He’s also actively involved in the development and implementation of multivariate and network-based statistical approaches to assess brain activity. In doing so, he hopes to better understand the properties of the brain networks underlying complex cognitive processes as they change across the lifespan.
