My research has two aims. First, to understand the relative contribution of white matter integrity, versus subcortical gray matter structure integrity, on the cognitive profiles associated with neurodegenerative subcortical diseases (e.g.,small vessel vascular dementia, Parkinson’s disease). Second, to apply this knowledge towards more collaborative and longitudinal research examining the predictive value of these patients’ white and gray matter structure integrity on a) disease associated cognitive decline and b) vulnerability to cognitive change after elective medical interventions (i.e., major orthopedic surgery). I conduct federally funded and privately funded research investigations addressing both of these aims.
