Exercise and Brain Health: Multi-Modal Imaging and Multi-Modal Activation
 
Dr. Smith’s research is designed to better understand the effects of exercise on brain function in older adults at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and the effects of concurrently performed exercise on emotional reactivity, threat detection, and attention to emotion. His studies have important implications for cognitive-behavioral treatments that seek to reduce disordered attention toward threatening or unpleasant stimuli. His vision is for his work regarding cognition and memory to merge with questions on emotion processing in order to address the full spectrum of mind-body interactions associated with exercise that promote brain health.
