As a cognitive neuroscientist, I am specifically interested in the linkage between cognitive processes and neural function in older adults in order to obtain insight into the dynamic interplay between neurobiological and cognitive processes across the lifespan. I got my BA degree in Psychology from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain) in 1999. I defended my Ph.D. with honors in 2007 (Cum Laude grade, and Best Doctoral Dissertation Award 2006-2007). My main research interest has been investigating the causes of cognitive decline that accompanies the aging process (both healthy and pathological), and studying in depth its specific neurofunctional characteristics. Currently, I am very interested in the “Frailty” status in elderly, as a condition opposed to full health or “Fitness”, and it would be interesting to further explore the psychophysiological basis of frailty status by neuroimaging methods in future projects.
