The research of this group is aimed at better understanding the neural basis for cognitive development during childhood and training-induced plasticity of the brain. In particular, we focus on working memory and attention which are central aspects of cognition.

The methodology includes functional MRI to study brain activity, diffusion tensor imaging to measure myelination, neural network models and computerized measures of behavior. A major focus is development of computerized methods for improving attention and working memory in children.

We are located at the Department of Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute campus and part of the Stockholm Brain Institute.
