Welcome to the Oh Laboratory in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University!

We investigate cognitive and neural bases of human memory and how the memory system changes with both normal and pathological brain aging processes, with a special emphasis on preclinical older adults. We use cognitive neuroscience methods and multimodal neuroimaging techniques including functional/structural MRI and PET that detects Alzheimer’s disease pathology in vivo. The overarching goal of our research is to understand neurocognitive underpinnings of cognitive and brain aging and Alzheimer’s disease pathology and develop early behavioral and neural biomarkers that help identify individuals at higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Our research is generously supported by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at NIH and Carney Institute for Brain Science at Brown University.
