Neuroimaging and Neuromodulatory Subcortial Systems PIAs: Neuroanatomy for Neuroimagers: Focus on Early AD Regions

Recorded on July 15, 2021
This webinar will focus on neuroanatomy of brain regions important early in the course of Alzheimer’s disease. Specifically, we will focus on neuromodulatory subcortical systems, including the locus coeruleus, and the medial temporal lobe. The webinar is specifically focused on neuroimagers who want to learn more about neuroanatomy and will have speakers from different disciplines, including neuroanatomy, neuropathology and neuroimaging.

 

Diversity and Disparities PIA: Examining the Roles of Acculturation and Low Education in Cognitive Functioning Among Older Adults in the United States and Brazil

Recorded on July 13, 2021
Cognitive functioning remains the prevailing outcome in aging and ADRD scientific inquiry. Yet, data are limited in how novel constructs like acculturation and low education impact cognitive functioning in diverse populations (e.g., ethnoracial, geographical). The webinar will characterize "acculturation in context" (dynamic exchange between new and host members of society) and its relationship with cognitive and brain aging in older Latinos residing in the United States as well as present findings from a population-based study of older adults in Brazil (75+ years) with very low education but with high cognitive performance, reinforcing sociobiological substrates.

Speakers:
Melissa Lamar and Paulo Caramelli
