We have access to the UKBiobank, which includes data on health, cognitive abilities, behaviour, brain imaging and genetcis on 500 000 aging British participants. 

Many different questions can be investigated, including:

  • What are the best neuroanatomical markers to predict cognitive phenotypes? (volume, surface, thickness, asymmetries)
  • What are neuroanatomical differences between the sexes?
  • What are the neuroanatomical and health characteristics of high IQ individuals? Does IQ profile (homogeneous vs. heterogenous) matter?
  • Do neuroanatomical markers mediate effects from genetic or environmental factors and cognitive phenotypes?
  • Bring your own question!

 Student profile: data science, statistics, econometrics, AI, neuroscience. Any other profile, but with strong analytical skills.
