Our laboratory has two primary aims:
1) to investigate the interaction between subcortical and white matter regions on memory/cognitive function changes in dementia
2) to investigate the role of subcortical nuclei and white matter integrity on susceptibility to medical interventions (e.g., elective surgery).
We publish papers on both aims. We also publish papers associated with structural imaging methodology. (We cannot assess brain-behavior correlates unless we are appropriately assessing both).
Attached links show select articles related to all aims.
Please also see more selected works of David Libon, Ph.D., and Melissa Lamar, Ph.D., as well – both two close collaborators with whom we study the role of leukoaraiosis on dementia.
Additionally, please see the other neuropsychology faculty from our Institution.
