Research Interests

Dr. Cronin-Golomb’s principal research focus is on the neural correlates of perception and cognition in aging and age-related neurodegenerative disease. Her main methodology is behavioral and includes visual psychophysics, neuropsychological assessment, and sensory/cognitive neuroscience, with collaborators in neuroimaging. A current emphasis is on the non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (perception, cognition, mood, stigma, sleep, circadian function, autonomic function) and their interaction with motor symptoms, with an emphasis on motor subtypes (e.g., body side of PD onset, type of symptom at onset). Her lab engages in basic research and in the development of interventions to enhance quality of life. Dr. Cronin-Golomb also has a long-standing interest in perception and cognition in Alzheimer’s disease. Her work and that of her students is supported by the National Institutes of Health, the American Parkinson’s Disease Association, and the Boston University Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Office, Affinity Research Collaborative (ARC).
