Neuroimaging & Health Research

How can we use physical health to improve cognitive and brain functions in special populations?

How do health factors like fitness, childhood obesity and ADHD influence our cognition and brain function? 

Which exercise type is best, given our population? 

Which exercise type is best for improving Mental Health? Cognitive Health? Brain Health? 

How can we make exercise more enjoyable? 

Can we use multi-modal neuroimaging data to predict: Exercise Adherence ? Cognitive function?  Psychopathology?  Individual differences?  


The Logan Lab investigates how these health factors influence our cognition and brain function across the lifespan. 

We are particularly interested in using neuroimaging techniques, such as EEG and fMRI, coupled with cognitive tasks, to assess these relationships.
