The Geriatric Mood Disorders Lab (GMDL) is headed by Dr. Akshya Vasudev, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Western University. The lab comprises of 2 full-time research assistants and a number of undergraduate and graduate students. We are researching meditation and yoga-based interventions for the treatment of mental health disorders across the life span. We use modern scientific techniques to assess the short and long terms effects of these interventions on mood, cognition, cardiovascular autonomic measures, neuroinflammatory blood markers and neuroimaging tasks.
