Introduction
Postdoctoral researcher at Aging Research Center (ARC) at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm. My research centers on the hippocampus and its role in various memory functions across the life-span. I am especially interested in the variation in properties and memory representations along the hippocampal long-axis, for instance the organization of hippocampal large-scale connectivity and its implications for episodic and spatial memory.

Using the multivariate method partial least squares (PLS) we examined potential age differences in the structural whole-brain covariance of the anterior and posterior hippocampus between young, middle-aged and older adults (N = 221). The expression of identified covariance patterns was further assessed in relation to episodic and spatial memory, po...

Men and women in three age-groups performed a spatial navigation task requiring them to remember their position in relation to their starting point. Performance was equally affected by age for men and women and men outperformed women in all three age-groups. Hippocampal volume was however only reduced with age in men, in bilateral anterior regions.
Poster
Episodic memory performance often decreases with age, especially for associative memory. The anterior hippocampus is frequently engaged during associative encoding, and is also the part of the hippocampus that shows age-related reductions in volume. Although much is known about differences between young and old adults, less is known about those in...

In previous research, a female advantage has been found in object location tasks, assessing item and spatial source memory. The parahippocampus is believed to have a specific role in source memory, with the anterior part being involved in item processing and the posterior part in processing of contextual information. However, findings are not ubiqu...
Poster
Spatial navigation performance depends on strategy, favoring hippocampus-mediated allocentric strategies employing cognitive maps over response-oriented egocentric strategies mediated by the caudate nucleus. This distinction is reflected in neural activation but also in grey matter volume. Men overall outperform women on spatial memory tasks, and f...
