The mission of the UT Clinical Neuroscience is to bridge knowledge from basic and clinical neuroscience with the aim of improving how we understand, predict, and treat age- and disease-related cognitive impairment. Current work in the lab is focused on identifying early cognitive vulnerability and isolating the underlying physiological mechanisms.
Cognition is the most important determinant of:
- Health status
- Quality of life
- Functional ability in older age
Preventing cognitive decline is central to ensuring successful aging for our growing population of the elderly. Learn more about our studies.
