Neurodegenerative diseases and Aging – Daniel Ferreira Research Group

Our goal is to understand how pathologies affect the human brain, causing neurodegeneration and cognitive decline. The pathologies we primarily focus on are Lewy Body disease, Alzheimer's disease, and vascular brain injury. We are interested in both biological mechanisms and clinical applications. We develop and employ methods to understand the effects of aging and disease, including brain imaging techniques, fluid biomarkers, cognitive tests, and genetics

The group is currently focused on dementia with Lewy bodies, but we also investigate other neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive aging. We work primarily with neuroimaging methods, and use both clinical and research-oriented techniques.
