My interests are the mechanisms of cognitive control in motor functions. Previously I have worked with the role of conscious intentions in motor cognition and control of action, both from experimental and theoretical perspectives. Recently my interests have changed toward a clinical perspective in trying to understand the functional changes in degenerative disorders, both for movement related disorders and general cognitive function. In this topic I am interested in how changes in connectivity is related to disease and cognition.
Starting February 2016 I am coordinating and conducting MEG studies of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s Dementia (AD) in collaboration with Per Svenningsson’s group (PD project) and the Nordic Brain Network (AD project). The aim of both project is to understand the differences I cognition between patients and healthy, particular in relation to changes in connectivity. Among other things we will investigate functional connectivity of resting-state activity, motor function and memory function.
