Webinar: Advances in Dementia Research
Updates on Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation in Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Disorders
Presented by Dr. Tarek Rajji, this webinar provides an overview of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD), and discusses a brain stimulation study that aims to improve memory and thinking processes in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
MCI is a condition that often precedes dementia. In the PAS-MCI study, a brain stimulation approach called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) will be assessed for its ability to strengthen connections between cells in the frontal area of the brain. This area of the brain is especially relevant to attention and memory in MCI.
This webinar is presented in partnership with the Toronto Dementia Research Alliance.
