Take part! We are always looking for volunteers of all ages. If you are interested, let us know.

Our lab uses different methods to explore changes in the brain and how they impact cognitive and social abilities as we get older. 

Who we are

Find out more please see the Publication page.

At the GoldAge Lab we study associations between brain and behaviour across the lifespan. We are interested in the relationship between cognitive and social changes in typical ageing, age-related illnesses and developmental disorders. We use a range of techniques including neuroimaging and brain stimulation to examine how our brains change as we get older and what factors may increase risk of cognitive decline or developing late-life depression. The GoldAge Research Group forms part of the Psychology Department at Goldsmiths, University of London.
