About Gagan Wig

 

Gagan Wig earned his BS in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of British Columbia and his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from Dartmouth College. Following his doctoral training, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard University and then joined the Human Connectome Project as a post-doctoral fellow at Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Wig is currently an Assistant Professor in the Center for Vital Longevity.

 

Research Interests

 

Dr. Wig's research program uses a combination of structural and functional imaging tools (including fMRI, DTI, and TMS) to understand the organization of large-scale human brain networks and how these networks change over the adult-lifespan. He uses this information to guide studies related to mnemonic and attentional processes, with a particular focus on understanding the sources of individual differences in memory and attention and how they may be modified by aging and disease.
