Health Policy PIA: Detect Early, Treat Better, Live Better? Early Detection of Alzheimer’s Disease — From Technology to Policy

Recorded on May 5, 2021
Recent technological advances offer tremendous possibility to shift the detection of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to its early stages. This webinar will provide an overview of novel technologies and emerging biomarkers for early disease detection. The panelists will also address issues around the value of early detection and practical considerations from the clinical perspective and health policy perspective.

Speakers:
Michelle M. Mielke, Gill Livingston and Darius Lakdawalla

 

Reserve, Resilience and Protective Factors PIA: Resistance Against AD Pathologies: The Role of Sleep, Exercise and Stress Management

Recorded on May 5, 2021
The focus of this webinar is to understand the role of three lifestyle factors (sleep, exercise and stress) in lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. We have invited three expert panelists who will discuss the mechanisms through which these lifestyle factors can provide resistance to AD pathologies and discuss cutting-edge research in their areas of investigation.

Speakers:
Alessandro Bartolomucci, Bryce Mander and Henriette van Praag

 

Electrophysiology and Neuromodulatory Subcortical Systems PIAs: EEG and Neuroimaging Methods to Probe Ascending Neuromodulatory Systems in Alzheimer's Disease

Recorded on May 4, 2021
During this webinar, we will share and discuss methodologies at the intersection between electrophysiology and functional imaging that are widely used in neuropsychiatric research and bear major potential also in the Alzheimer’s field. These methods are highly promising but still little used in Alzheimer’s research so that we want to foster exchange and inspiration across the disciplines.

Speakers:
Lea Grinberg, Christoph Mulert and Claudio Babilioni
