eBrain Journal Club


Join us for our December journal club meeting, the last journal club of this semester!

Journal club meetings are open to anyone with an interest in this topic, regardless of discipline or expertise, and we hope to stimulate multidisciplinary discussion and collaboration. 

This month we’ll discuss a study evaluating cardiovascular and metabolic conditions (CMC) in relation to Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers. Of particular interest this month, due to the novel examination here: Are CMC related to tau deposition? In addition, the paper evaluates whether CMC are related to amyloid deposition, cortical thinning, and hypometabolism.

Due to construction in the School of Public Health, please take the main Parran Hall elevator (DeSoto St. entrance) to the third floor. Turn right and continue down the corridor to Crabtree Hall. Take those elevators to the 5th floor to get to A521. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
