|Statement of Need / Activity Purpose||
Research with biofluid biomarkers aims to establish objective associations with behavioral and cognitive changes, but depends upon anthropometric and sociodemographic variables that may affect the final results. Though neuropsychiatric syndromes may serve as proxy markers for neuropathological change, neuropsychiatric assessment must take human diversity into account. In this second webinar, we will discuss the current knowledge on biological disparities that may affect the role of biofluid biomarkers as outcome measures in neuropsychiatric studies.
