Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Maria Gorno Tempini MD, PhD
Identification of structure-function relationships in the brain has been an important goal of behavioral neurology. Many new methodologies, studying both healthy controls and neurologically impaired individuals, have recently provided new insights into the networks of brain regions that underlie specific tasks or functions. Faculty will illustrate the contributions of a variety of modalities toward understanding the neural correlates of memory and praxis. A cognitive neuroscience perspective will inform discussion of the component processes and brain systems subserving these behaviors. An efficient approach to the evaluation of patients with cognitive and behavioral disorders including dementia will be reviewed.
This program complements C77: Behavioral Neurology I: Network Anatomy of Behavior and Language, but covers independent topics.
Participants should be able to describe strengths and weaknesses of a variety of approaches (e.g., neuroimaging methods) toward identifying structure-function relationships; be able to describe some recent insights into the neural bases of memory and praxis; be able to describe the component processes of these cognitive abilities using a contemporary cognitive neuroscience perspective; should increase their sophistication in understanding the neurobehavioral assessment of patients with behavioral and cognitive neurologic disorders, including dementias and stroke.
