Ninni PerssonNinni Persson is working as a Postdoc at the Aging Research Center. She earned her PhD in psychology at the Stockholm University in 2016. From 2008 she is  a licensed psychologist, and has worked with neuropsychological assessments in dementia evaluations.

Her research involves age-related changes in the brain and cognition, tapping both higher order cognitive functions and emotional processing. Ninni is particularly interested in the bi-directional relationships between the brain and behavior.  She uses T1w structural images, and quantitative susceptibility maps (QSM) in her research. She has recently also started to work with functional magnetic resonance imaging. She teaches graduate and postgraduate courses in neuropsychology and adult development.
