Research Description

Dr. Albert's research focuses on the systems and behavioral neuroscience of early cognitive changes in pathological cognitive aging. Her work includes neuroimaging and remote, ecological assessment of subjective and objective cognitive function to better understand early brain network changes in Alzheimer's Disease, develop markers of risk, and target novel interventions to support cognitive maintenance in aging.
