Research interests

Many diseases of the brain are so-called complex diseases. The onset and progression of such diseases is caused by genetic risk factors and environmental factors. These factors are intertwinded and hard to disentangle. If we want to understand how risky genes and environmental factors (including lifestyle factors) interact in these diseases, we need to incorporate both types of risk factor in our animal models.

Our research focuses on the relation between physical activity, cognition and brain health. A particular area of interest is the relationship between exercise (or a sedentary lifestyle) and Alzheimer's disease.
