Down Syndrome and Alzheimer's Disease & Reserve, Resilience and Protective Factors PIAs: Cognitive Reserve in Adults with Down Syndrome

November 28, 2023 (10:30 AM CT)
The webinar will debate how concepts within the framework of cognitive reserve and brain resilience can be applied in Down Syndrome (DS), with the overarching goal of extending the period of mild AD-symptoms and increase the overall quality of life.

Neuromodulatory Subcortical Systems PIA - Tiny Dots: Pathological sensitivity of diffusion MRI in monoaminergic and cholinergic nuclei and their projections.

November 27, 2023 (10:00 AM CT)
Using post-mortem in-situ MRI and histopathology approach, we studied the capacity of diffusion MRI markers in detecting monoaminergic and cholinergic degeneration, and their associations with nuclei pathology in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Diversity and Disparities PIA: Alzheimer’s disease across languages

November 17, 2023 (12:30 PM CT)
How do linguistic deficits in Alzheimer’s disease vary across languages? And what are the key challenges for developing cross-linguistically valid tests? Join us for an exciting discussion panel around these questions and more.

Cognition & Neuromodulatory Subcortical Systems PIAs: Roles of subcortical neural dysfunction in AD

November 9, 2023 (10:00 AM CT)
Speakers will present that substantia nigra integrity associates with poorer recognition memory for novel stimuli in early AD and that reduced LC-transentorhinal cortex connections in DTI relate to higher CSF tau burden in healthy older individuals.

Biofluid Based Biomarkers in Neuropsychiatric Syndromes - The Diagnostic Challenges Webinar

November 8, 2023 (12:00 PM CT)
Biomarkers and behavioural features may signal dementia onset or differential diagnosis between dementia syndromes, though sensitivity and specificity are highly variable. We address such diagnostic challenges in this interactive webinar.

Electrophysiology & Neuromodulatory Subcortical Systems PIAs: Tracking subcortical activity in Alzheimer’s disease

November 6, 2023 (12:00 PM CT)
Learn how the Alzheimer’s risk variant TREM2 promotes network hyperexcitability in a thalamocortical circuit, and how aging impacts associations between locus coeruleus functional connectivity and cognitive and affective functions.
