Recent brain stimulation research suggests that mild brain stimulation (ie. tDCS) when given during performance of a cognitive (memory) task in a single session improves performance.  Also patients who have had a stroke learn how to do certain 'hands-on' tasks better when...

Diagnosis and prediction of MCI and AD using pattern rec­ognition and methods. Early and accurate diagnosis and prediction of MCI and AD is essential for developing new treatments which may prevent AD, or slow its progression. However, this is particularly challenging due to...

Status: Current

The Sydney Stoke Study began in 1997 with the award of a grant by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). Over the next 3 years, nearly 1000 stroke patients were screened to finally include 200 patients in the study. An additional 100 healthy subjects were recruited from the...

Status: Current

MCI represents a transitional state in which individuals show impairment of cognitive function, but retain relatively intact global cognition. We explored the different grey matter change patterns of normal ageing and MCI

image - GWAS 0
Status: Current

Most complex traits, such as blood protein levels and memory performance, have a genetic component and many genes are thought to be involved.  In genome-wide association studies, known as GWAS, we test whether hundreds of thousands of genetic variants are associated with a measure of interest,...

image - Morphology Of Cortical Surface
Status: Current

The cortical folding process begins very early, starting from 10 weeks of foetal life. Therefore, alterations in cortical development can provide us with important clues about the resulting morphology. Such morphological changes in the brain are associated with ageing, and this is possibly...

image - Structural Brain Networks
Status: Current

Traditionally, the study of the relationship between brain structure, brain ageing and associated neuropsychiatric disorders involved examining circumscribed atrophy or other abnormalities of various grey or white matter regions of interest by using 3D T1- weighted structural MRI scans. However...
