Profile

Dr Rose conducts research on the cognitive neuroscience of memory and aging. He studies the neurocognitive processes that support working memory, long-term memory, and prospective memory in healthy young adults and older adults, and in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or amnesia. His research uses functional neuroimaging (MRI, ERP) and neurostimulation (TMS, tDCS) technologies and behavioral assessment to test and inform theories of memory and aging. In addition to studying basic memory processes, his research also assesses how cognitive theories can be applied to understanding memory performance in the real world and how cognitive training techniques can be utilized to improve memory.
