Dag Årsland Group
Translational Geriatric Neuropsychiatry
The group was established in 2011, and our main focus is to study cognition and depression and other neuropsychiatric disturbances in elderly people with brain diseases, with a particular focus on the non-Alzheimer dementias such as Parkinsons disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.
In addition to studying clinical phenotypes and longitudinal course, we aim at exploring underlying mechanisms and developing novel biomarker and treatment targets. The group is highly inter-disciplinary, and collaborates with the many excellent groups at the division and with Per Svenningssons group at Department of Neuroscience, as well as Elisabeth Londos group in Malmö. In addition, we have international collaborators including professor Tormod Fladby, University of Oslo,and Centre for Age-Related Research at Stavanger University Hospital in Norway, and professor Clive Ballard and his team at Wolfson Centre for Age-Related Diseases, Kings College London.
