Alireza SalamiAlireza Salami is currently an Assistant Professor at the Aging Research Center. He completed his PhD in computational neuroscience in 2012 at Umeå University where he implemented various multivariate and multimodal techniques to address questions related to structural and functional brain changes in normal aging.

Alireza’s primary research interest concentrates on inter-individual differences in human’s functional and structural connectome and their links to individual differences in cognition. He investigates whether normal aging is accompanied by disruptive alterations in resting-state functional connectome and concomitant deterioration in cognitive processes. In addition, he is interested in understanding the interplay between connectome and cortical/subcortical dopaminergic neurotransmission throughout the adult lifespan.
