Neuroimaging Research Group Leader

Neuroimaging Research Group


My research interests include the use of neuroimaging techniques to better understand the pathophysiology of the preclinical stages of Alzheirmer’s disease (AD) and to assess the impact of preventive interventions in the brain. I’m also interested in the cerebral correlates healthy aging, AD biomarkers, as well as those of genetic and environmental risk factors for AD and for cardiovascular disease.
