My research explores how grid cell coding is affected by very early Alzheimer’s Disease pathology. And if changes in grid cell coding during path integration tasks can be used as a biomarker for Alzheimer’s Disease pathology. To do so I use functional imaging, immersive VR technology and computational modelling.
In addition, I am interested in developing a virtual reality path integration task that can be used as a diagnostic tool in a clinical setting.
Lastly, I am also interested in understanding how aging affects precision of spatial memories and the encoding strategies that are employed during spatial memory tasks.
