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.
“For age is opportunity no less
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
