Melis Anatürk

MA (Hons), MSc


DPhil Candidate in Psychiatry

I am a DPhil student supervised by Professor Klaus Ebmeier and Dr Claire Sexton. My research focuses on the relationship between lifestyle and the ageing brain.

By combining detailed epidemiological data with neuropsychological and neuroimaging outcomes, I am investigating whether activity levels over the lifespan predict cognitive performance and structural and functional connectivity changes of the brain, in old age. The results of my DPhil project may inform the development of interventions designed to promote healthy cognitive ageing and also clarify whether there is an important period of life in which such interventions could be delivered. My research is supported by the Department of Psychiatry, Clarendon Fund and St John's College Kendrew Scholarship.

Prior to starting a DPhil at Oxford, I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of St Andrews (2014), and a MSc degree in Health Psychology at University College London (2015).
