Brain Health and Aging

This project aims to analyze speech discourses across different age groups to identify language-related aspects that can be correlated with standardized mental health tests and traditional biomarkers obtained from MRI scans. The research will be conducted using The Aging Brain Cohort (ABC) repository, which provides a valuable dataset for studying aging-related changes in language and mental health. By exploring the relationship between language patterns in speech and established measures of mental health, the project seeks to enhance our understanding of the potential role of linguistic markers as indicators of mental well-being in aging populations.
