This is the sixth lecture in a six part series offered by the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center for the Sacramento Metropolitan Area and communities throughout Northern California. The theme of this year’s series is healthy brain aging and prevention. This is a distinguished lecture in the series.
Dr. Park is the Distinguished University Chair in Behavioral and Brain Sciences, and a University of Texas Regents’ Research Scholar, as well as Director of Research at the Center.
Her primary research interest is focused on the study of the aging mind. She directs the Dallas lifespan brain study which is a large longitudinal study that assesses changes in the aging brain and relates these changes to brain activity and cognitive function. She is particularly interested in isolating a neural footprint during middle age that predicts who will age well cognitively and who will not, and has done extensive work on the role of amyloid deposition in healthy adults.
Her talk will focus on aspects of brain and behavior that suggest a healthy and normally-functioning individual may be in the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
