Cognitive Ageing and Impairment Neurosciences (CAIN)
CAIN was established in 2016 and is co-lead by Dr Hannah Keage and Dr Tobias Loetscher.
Our work focuses on understanding how and why cognition changes across the lifespan (particularly in late-life), in both health and disease, and the fundamental brain mechanisms underlying these changes. Further, we evaluate the effectiveness of interventions to reverse or delay the progression of cognitive impairments.
The lab employs psychophysiological methods such as electroencephalograph (EEG), eye-tracking and transcranial doppler (TCD), along with cognitive and behavioural testing. We are located on the Magill UniSA campus.
We have opportunities for honours, masters and PhD students, along with undergraduate interns and Vacation Scholars.
