In the Lifespan Cognitive Dynamics lab we are interested how, and why, cognitive abilities change across the lifespan. We are especially interested in changes, and differences, in fluid abilities such as abstract reasoning. To study these questions we use a range of multivariate methods in large samples to examine how cognitive abilities affect each other, how brain structure and function supports changes in cognitive abilities, and how cognitive functioning interfaces with lifestyle factors such as physical and mental health, social and intellectual engagement and environmental factors. Our research is supported by Radboud University, the Medical Research Council, the ESRC, the Wellcome Trust and the European Union. You’ll find our newest papers and preprints here:

Ancillary activities

Rogier Kievit examines the way in which faculties, such as reasoning and memory, change in people during their lifetime. He is particularly interested in periods of rapid change, such as childhood and old age, and looks at the role that brain structure and function play in these changes.
