Lisa Eyler, PhD



Research Interests

The biological and neural correlates of age-related cognitive decline across varied clinical populations, including those with underlying neurologic (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease) and psychiatric (e.g., bipolar disorder [BD]) disease. I am particularly interested in the role of vascular health in cognition.
