Research Interests

Dr. Tsvetanov is a post-doctoral researcher in cognitive neuroscience of ageing. The central goal of his research is to obtain a better understanding of the complex relationship between human brain dynamics and cognition in healthy ageing and age-degenerative diseases. He approaches this goal using a variety of methods – examining human neural dynamics at the neurophysiological, haemodynamic, and neurotransmitter levels with data-driven and generative modelling of magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiological recordings. During his PhD at the University of Birmingham, UK, he used well established cognitive paradigms and multimodal MRI techniques (structural MRI, fMRI, and single-voxel MR spectroscopy) to characterise age-related changes in large-scale brain networks and how these changes in functional and metabolic plasticity contribute to behavioural impairments in older adults. Before moving to United Kingdom, he received a dual undergraduate degree in Medical Technology at the University of Applied Sciences Giessen-Friedberg, Giessen, Germany, including a practical year at the Clinic for Radiology, Phillips-University Marburg, Germany.
