Prof Kirk Erickson

University of Pittsburgh
Dr. Erickson’s research interests range from cognitive neuroscience, aging, neuroplasticity, genetics, and molecular mechanisms of cognitive function. His research focuses on understanding the changes in various aspects of cognition, and the supporting brain structure and function, across the lifespan. He has found that participation in moderate amounts of physical activity can significantly improve cognition and brain function in older adults. He is currently the Principal Investigator of the BACH lab at the University of Pittsburgh and is continuing his research on how the brain changes in late adulthood and the factors that promote successful aging.
