Zooming in on Alzheimer’s Disease and Normal Memory Decline
Scott A. Small, M.D.
Columbia University Medical Center, New York
The hippocampus is a brain circuit that is targeted by Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders. It is assumed that clues into the caused of these disorders are encrypted within the circuit. Dr. Small will review how he and his colleagues have used MRI and other technologies to extract these clues. He will review how this insight is leading to new therapeutic interventions for Alzheimer’s disease and for normal age-related decline.
