Elizabeth Lane, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow


Elizabeth Lane is currently completing her postdoctoral fellowship in cognitive aging at the Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer’s Center under the mentorship of Dr. Angela Jefferson. She completed her bachelor’s degree in psychology and her master’s and doctoral degrees in biological psychology/neuropsychological research at the University of Missouri in Saint Louis.

Liz’s research interests are focused on understanding modifiable risk factors for cognitive aging, including the cerebrovascular impact of insulin resistance on the brain in older adults. Her work utilizes neuroimaging and neuropsychological tests to better understand how modifiable risk factors are related to cerebrovascular integrity and cognition in older adults.
