Brain plasticity in ageing and age-related diseases
We are examining how both homeostatic and Hebbian plasticity are changing in ageing and in age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease. We use a combination of two-photon imaging in behaving mice and electrophysiology to identify plasticity mechanisms that are changing with age, with the intent to manipulate these mechanisms to restore plasticity. In a separate project, we are working with cohorts of older people in Bosnia and Herzegovina and throughout Eastern Europe to determine the everyday activities that promote and support healthy ageing.
