Cerebrovascular Laboratory

The focus of the Cerebrovascular Laboratory is the study of brain aging and neuroplasticity in response to lifestyle modifications, with the ultimate goal to improve brain health and quality-of-life in older adults.

  • Our team addresses the key questions of if, and to what extent, reducing cardiovascular risk factors, dietary interventions, sleep, and exercise impact brain structure, function, and perfusion in middle-aged and older adults.
  • Integrative systems physiology and state-of-the-art neuroimaging approaches (including transcranial doppler, echocardiography, near infrared spectroscopy, MRI, and PET technologies) are used to answer these key questions.
  • The motto of our team is "Strive for Excellence."


  • To understand the interrelationship between cardiovascular and brain health
  • To examine the effects of aging and lifestyle modifications on brain structure, function, and perfusion in middle-aged and older adults
  • To study dynamic regulation of cerebral blood flow and cerebrovascular function under physiological and pathophysiological conditions
