https://cam.mbi.ufl.edu/wordpress/files/2021/11/UF-application-final.mp3 It was about a year ago that Cristina Besosa, Mack Bolen, Aleyna Ross, and Ethan Smith applied to UF’s Biomedical Sciences PhD program. All successful in being accepted, in their first year in the program, and focused in the neuroscience concentration, they came together to discuss their experiences…
For the past 20 months scientists have figured out a way to carry out conferences and listen to speakers virtually. The draw back is that the in-person component that allows for discussion, collaboration and discovery is missing. Neuromatch conference allows a virtual conference, which cuts down on costs, time, and…
Stacey Alvarez-Alvarado, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Adam Woods, Ph.D., in the University of Florida’s Center for Cognitive Aging and Memory, published research on the impact of tDCS and cognitive training on neurometabolites in the frontal lobes. Her article, “Impact of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation and…
CAM Center researchers studying use of a noninvasive brain stimulation treatment paired with cognitive training have found the therapy holds promise as an effective, drug-free approach for someday warding off Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Aprinda Indahlastari, Ph.D., a postdoctoral associate in the University of Florida’s Center for Cognitive Aging and Memory, is the latest investigator to be featured in MBI Rising Stars, a video series highlighting up-and-coming neuroscience researchers at the UF.
New research by University of Florida neuroscientists suggests that male and female sex hormones may play differing roles in risk-taking inclinations and the ability to delay gratification.
Steven T. DeKosky, M.D., deputy director of UF’s Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute, honored with the Henry Wisniewski Lifetime Achievement Award during the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference. The award recognizes significant contributions to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia research, either through a single scientific discovery or a body of work.
Dr. Brittney Yegla to speak at Workshop on Research Definitions for Reserve and Resilience in Cognitive Aging and Dementia.
Research could provide a path for more targeted future interventions, such as non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation.
In The Conversation, Drs. Golde and DeKosky explain the new test, which shows high accuracy in detecting chemicals specific to Alzheimer’s.
