“How do age-related changes in brain signal variability relate to individual differences in
functional capacity and performance?”

Recent empirical work has demonstrated that variability in network dynamics differs between younger and older adults. With increasing age, brain signal variability decreases at coarse temporal scales and increases at fine temporal scales, suggesting a shift from global toward more local neural processing. I will discuss how these age-related changes relate to task performance (e.g., visual word recognition in healthy adults), and how they relate to the capacity for normalization in brain disease (e.g., depression).
