Basak’s Lifespan Neuroscience and Cognition Lab
The Lifespan Neuroscience and Cognition (LiNC) lab is located in the Center for Vital Longevity, University of Texas at Dallas, and is directed by Dr. Chandramallika Basak. We utilize both behavioral and brain imaging techniques to understand the mechanisms of memory and complex skill and how these abilities may change and be enhanced across our lifespan. Our research is particularly focused on the interaction between working memory and attentional control, sources of individual differences of enhanced learning and memory, and how they are affected by age and memory disorders.
