Quick Summary
  • Professor of Psychology Charan Ranganath and his colleagues are developing biomarkers to identify individuals with preclinical Alzheimer’s disease.
  • They’ve focused their sights on an area of the brain called the lateral entorhinal cortex (LEC), which is ground zero for damage in preclinical Alzheimer's disease.
  • Ranganath and his team are figuring out how to assess this pathology in a noninvasive way.
