Dr. Adam Greenberg receives funding for new inquiry into early cognitive decline in Alzheimer's

Dr. Adam Greenberg and collaborators have received a $50,000 Pilot Award from the Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin for the project titled, "Neuroimaging and behavioral evidence of subjective cognitive decline in adults at-risk for Alzheimer's disease."

This project will use a combination of sensitive reaction time testing and functional MRI to explore early markers of dementia via decline in attention, working memory, and affective processing. These patients are sampled from a large number who present each year with subjective cognitive complaints but show no clinical deviation from normal on standard neuropsychological tests.

Dr. Adam Greenberg is an Assistant Professor in the Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Sensory Neuroscience and Perception Laboratory, also known as the SNAP Lab.  His work seeks to understand how human behavior is guided by the neurobiology of attention and perception in the visual, auditory, and olfactory domains.  Collaborators on this project include Drs. Laura Umfleet and Jacklynn Fitzgerald. Dr. Laura Umfleet is an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Dr. Jacklynn Fitzgerald is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Marquette University.
