Imaging the Ageing Brain
About the Speaker
Dr Claire Sexton
Department of Psychiatry, Medical Sciences Division, University of Oxford
Claire Sexton is a post-doctoral researcher at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford. She graduated from the University of Manchester with BSc Neuroscience in 2006. She then worked as a Research Assistant at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University, before moving to Oxford to complete a DPhil in Psychiatry. Her DPhil research used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to investigate the role of structural and functional connectivity in late-life depression, bipolar disorder, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease, while her current work uses MRI techniques to investigate the ageing process and factors that may promote healthy ageing in the brain, including physical activity and sleep.
