Discovery (Biological & Genetic Mechanisms)

Teal S. Eich, PhD, is a cognitive neuroscientist whose research explores age-related changes to executive function. She is particularly interested in the neural mechanisms supporting cognitive inhibition, and understanding how morphological changes to neuroanatomy affect the ability to successfully inhibit information across different levels (during response, when selectively attending to stimuli, and in memory). Eich uses behavioral and neuroimaging (structural- and functional-MRI) methods to probe these interactions in healthy younger and older adults, and in individuals at risk for developing neurologic disorders including Alzheimer’s Disease based on biologic and genetic risk factors.
