Eduard Vilaplana has defended today his Doctoral Thesis entitled: “A biphasic model for cortical structural changes in preclinial AD: a multimodal MRI, CSF and PET study”.
A new publication led by the Sant Pau Memory Unit shows that microstructural changes of the cerebral cortex during the Alzheimer’s disease progression follow a biphasic model.
Sant Pau Initiative on Neurodegeneration 1. What is the SPIN cohort? The main objective of the SPIN cohort (Sant Pau Initiative on Neurodegeneration) is to widen our knowledge of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal lobe degeneration, through the study of biochemical and neuroimaging markers (also known as biomarkers). This … Read more
In the Memory Unit we perform imaging studies focused on Alzheimer’s disease and other related disorders that allow us to correlate structural, functional or even metabolic brain measures with several cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), clinical or neuropsychologic biomarkers. The neuroimage research line, led by Dr. Fortea, is funded by 3 active grants from the Spanish Government … Read more
