Colleen Hughes

Postdoctoral Researcher

Montreal Neurological Institute

I investigate the social neuroscience of aging. Specifically, I am interested in how we perceive and understand the thoughts and feelings of others and whether social functioning varies depending on the similarity of others to oneself. During my PhD at Indiana University (2020), I investigated age differences in functional connectivity of the brain during multiple mental states (tasks and resting-state) among healthy younger and older adults. I joined the Montreal Neurological Institute in 2020 as a postdoctoral researcher to explore how social functioning influences cognitive and brain health in pre-symptomatic Alzheimer’s disease.
