Gagan Wig holds a dual appointment as an Assistant Professor of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at UTD and as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He is also a faculty member at the Center for Vital Longevity and director of the Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory. Dr. Wig's research uses a combination of structural and functional imaging tools to understand the organization of large-scale human brain networks and how these networks change over the adult lifespan. He uses this information to guide studies related to memory and attention, with a particular focus on understanding the sources of individual differences in memory and attention, and how they may be affected by aging and disease.
