Linda Geerligs is an associate professor at the Donders Institute. Her research focuses on understanding the dynamics of brain function at different timescales. On the timescale of the lifespan she investigates how brain function dynamically reorganizes with age and what mechanisms allow older adults to preserve high level of cognitive function despite age-related declines in brain structure. On the timescale of daily life experiences (seconds to minutes) she investigates how the brain segments and integrates information over time into meaningful events and neural states.Research group
