Functional Imaging in Early Detection of Alzheimer's Disease

Dr. Johnson is a clinical neuropsychologist with research interests in brain function in Alzheimers Disease and related disorders and the effect of caloric restriction on brain aging. Current projects focus on A) the neurobiological and psychological processes that affect memory; B) early detection of Alzheimers Disease with multi-modal imaging including amyloid imaging; C) machine learning based multi-modal imaging markers of AD; D) enriching clinical trials and improving trial design with multi-kernel machine learning to speed the discovery of effective treatments for AD; E) Caloric Restriction effects of brain function and structure in non-human primates.
