Jonas PerssonJonas Persson received his PhD from Umeå University in 2002. After a one-year post doc, also at Umeå University, he spent three years as an international research fellow at the Department of Psychology, University of Michigan. From 2008 he has been heading an independent research group on the neural basis for cognition and aging at the Department of Psychology, Stockholm University, which has been funded by the Swedish Science Council. During that period he also became an associate professor at the Department of Psychology, Stockholm University.

Jonas Persson is currently a senior researcher at the Aging Research Center (ARC) and Deputy Head of Division. His research primarily deals with the interaction between brain structure-function and higher cognitive functions in aging, with a particular focus on memory (episodic/working memory) and executive control functions. These questions are addressed by means of structural (brain anatomy) and functional (brain function) MRI and measures of cognitive performance.
