News of 2017
- December 29, 2017: Heidi will present her latest work at the Human Amyloid Imaging Conference in Miami. On Thursday January 18, I will present our data on amyloid-tau interactions along the lifespan in APOE E4 carriers and non-carriers and on Friday I will present associations between basal forebrain volume and tau! Happy to see you there!
- November 10, 2017: Our group in Boston has published a manuscript in Neuroimage Clinical on additive versus interactive effects between amyloid deposition and cortical thickness on clinical decline in patients with prodromal Alzheimer's disease. There are some cool region-specific effects!! Congrats to Fred!
- November 3, 2017: Kim Dillen has defended her dissertation ("The role of the retrosplenial cortex in Alzheimer's disease") successfully today!! Congrats to Dr. Dillen!!
- October 22, 2017: Our review on the role of the cerebellum in Alzheimer's disease pathology and symptomatology is now published in Brain! This has been a great collaboration with Prof. Schmahmann (Boston), Dr. Hopkins (Halifax), Dr. van Leeuwen (Maastricht) and Dr. Bruner (Burgos).
- July 24, 2017: Our exciting work on imaging the locus coeruleus at ultra-high field MRI (7T MRI) has been accepted for publication in Neuroimage. See here for more information: Priovoulos et al.
- July 7, 2017: Whitney's work on delayed postgadolinium FLAIR enhancement in normal older individuals and patients with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease has been accepted for publication in the American Journal of Neuroradiology! Congrats Whitney!!
- June 23, 2017: Heidi will present her work on the relevance of the locus coeruleus and the cerebellum for cognitive deficits in Alzheimer's disease at the Spring Symposium of the Flemish Association for Neuropsychology in Leuven, Belgium.
- June 9, 2017: Kim's work on temporal network modeling of default mode network hubs in healthy older individuals, patients with subjective cognitive decline and prodromal Alzheimer's disease is now published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease
- May 5, 2017: Work from the Harvard Aging Brain Study -in which Heidi contributed - on neuroimaging markers associated with optimal memory performance in late-life has been accepted for publication in Neuropsychologia. Congrats to Maria!!
- March 17, 2017: Heidi will talk about her work on longitudinal associations between tau pathology (measures with PET), white matter changes, hippocampal volume and memory during the lab meeting of the BAnD Lab (Brain Aging and Dementia Lab of Dr. David Salat) at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston.
- March 10, 2017: Heidi will be presenting her work on longitudinal associations between tau pathology, white matter changes and memory at the 30th Annual Massachusetts Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and Boston University Alzheimer's Disease center Poster Session on Friday March 10, 2017 at the Merck Research Laboratories building. At the same event, Joost will present his work on white matter hyperintensities and diffusion imaging in Alzheimer's disease. .
- February 24, 2017: Heidi will be presenting her work on the locus coeruleus and its role in memory dysfunction at the Speakers series of the Neuroimaging and Neruropsychology group of the VA Hospital in Boston (USA) on Thursday March 2nd, 2017.
- January 12, 2017: Heidi will be presenting her work on longitudinal associations between tau pathology, white matter changes and memory at the Human Amyloid Imaging Conference (Miami, USA) on Thursday January 12, 2017.
This work is in collaboration with Prof. Keith Johnson and Prof. Reisa Sperling (Boston, USA).
