Can brain scans be used to diagnose Alzheimer’s?

By July 30, 2019 Community Events

Tune in this Friday, August 2 @ 9AM for the next episode of our monthly Facebook LIVE series, “Can brain scans be used to diagnose Alzheimer’s?” This month, we’re joined by Craig Stark, PhD.

Dr. Stark earned a doctorate in Cognitive Psychology from Carnegie Mellon University. He is a Professor of Neurobiology & Behavior, the James L. McGaugh Chair in Neurobiology of Learning & Memory, and serves as Director of the UCI Campus Center for Neuroimaging and the state-of-the-art Facility for Imaging and Brain Research (FIBRE). Dr. Stark’s research utilizes brain imaging and experimental psychology to increase understanding of long-term memory in humans, particularly those affected by age-related brain diseases, like Alzheimer’s.

To attend LIVE and ask Dr. Stark YOUR questions, login to your Facebook this Friday morning and search @UCIrvineMIND to view the video on our page. You can also click the link below to “Like” and “Follow” UCI MIND to receive notifications when we go live.
