Dr. Babulal is interested in investigating the relationship between cognitive function and mental health and its impact on the daily living activities of those with chronic neurological diseases. Specific research projects include characterizing functional changes in older adults using Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers, predicting global decline in aging using neurobehavioral markers, assessing how social forces (e.g. discrimination, chronic stress, racism) influence health and well-being among racial and ethnic minorities, and developing/validating effective educational programs to improve and prolong functional outcomes in aging.
