Researcher, author and journal contributor, Dr. Suzanne Corkin, hails to us from Cambridge, Massachusetts. Fields of interest include: Biological bases of human memory systems; Aging, Sensory Functions; Natural history and pathophysiology of degenerative disorders; and Structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging.
Dr. Corkin and her colleagues investigate the cognitive and neural processes that support working memory (online storage and retrieval of information) and long-term memory (offline storage and retrieval of information). The participants in their lab research are healthy young adults (MIT students), healthy older adults, and patients with neurological diseases (amnesia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases). The research methods include behavioral testing to document memory performance, structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to document brain anatomy, and functional MRI to document brain physiology.
