Cognition in aging: Prestigeous European research grant for Magdeburg neuroscientist
Date:8/22/2013

live an independent and active life if their sense of direction is still working well," states the neuroscientist.

His approach is interdisciplinary: The Magdeburg project combines the study of brain processes by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mathematical models and advanced data analysis techniques. This is complemented by navigation within a realistically simulated environment using a "virtual theater". Within this 360-degree cinema, research participants can move on a treadmill in all directions. They have a simulated environment always in sight that adapts to their movements.

Thomas Wolbers studied Psychology at the University of Hamburg. He did his postdoctoral research at the University of California at Santa Barbara (USA) on the neural basis of spatial orientation in humans. In 2009, he joined the Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems at the University of Edinburgh, where he worked as a Senior Lecturer. At the same time he began to research, as a member of the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, age-related changes in spatial abilities. In 2012, he was jointly appointed by the Otto-von-Guericke-Universitt Magdeburg and the DZNE as a professor for "Cognitive Ageing".
