Neural basis of cognition; preclinical deficits in dementia gene-carriers; frontal subcortical deficits, particularly Huntington's disease
Research in this laboratory uses tools of neuropsychology and cognitive psychology to examine behavioral correlates of brain dysfunction. Topics of current interest include subtypes of Alzheimer's disease, preclinical cognitive deficits associated with gene-carriers of Huntington's disease and clinical/imaging correlates of cognitive measures. Functional MR and PET are used to examine frontal-striatal circuitry dysfunction in these disorders.
