Dr. Tsvetanov is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in cognitive neuroscience of ageing. The central goal of his research is to obtain a better understanding of the complex relationship between human brain dynamics and cognition in healthy ageing and age-degenerative diseases. He approaches this goal using a variety of methods – examining human neural dynamics at the neurophysiological, haemodynamic, and neurotransmitter levels with data-driven and generative modelling of magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiological recordings.
