Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology Research

The Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology Division offers an innovative research portfolio through the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer’s Center, which focuses on:


·         Identifying risk factors and early diagnostic markers for memory loss and abnormal cognitive aging, and

·         Developing novel treatments and preventative measures for memory loss and abnormal cognitive aging.


Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer’s Center faculty and investigators are interested in reducing the public health burden of mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, and related disorders.  Our investigators have complimentary scientific expertise and are distinguished scientists in their respective fields. Particular interests of our scientists include:


·         Discovering mechanisms associated with memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease

·         Developing innovative neuroimaging methods to enhance early detection and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease

·         Applying experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience techniques to understand memory changes in healthy and diseased aging
