Dr Louise Lavrencic is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). Louise has a background in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience, and undertook a PhD at the University of South Australia. Her previous research focussed on cognitive reserve in older adults, and how this relates to brain structure and function. Louise has experience with electroencephalography (EEG) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques.
Louise is passionate about understanding the factors that affect cognitive ageing and dementia in late life, and how we can help people to age well. Louise works across a number of projects being run by the Aboriginal Health and Ageing Team, but is particularly involved in a neuroimaging study investigating dementia in Aboriginal Australians.
