Interests

I am interested in the effects of ageing and age-related disorders on decision-making. I use Sequential Sampling and related models (LBA, DDM) on perceptual decision task data in order to find out how key decision-making parameters change with age and disease. The combination of this modelling approach with brain imaging analysis (MRI, VBM, SPM) makes it possible to describe these changes mathematically and understand them better mechanistically.
