Aging, Cognitive, and Mood Disorders Research

Dementia is a highly debilitating condition afflicting a significant number of the elderly population. It carries profound medical and socioeconomic burdens for the society. Current treatment options have provided only limited success. Projects focus on: 1) earlier detection of cognitive and brain functional decline, 2) translational pharmacotherapy of dementing disorders, and 3) prevention of cognitive deterioration, 4) psychiatric manifestations of dementia, and 5) brain mechanisms of cognitive impairment.
