Episode 7: “Can brain scans be used to diagnose Alzheimer’s?”

This month, we’re joined by Craig Stark, PhD. Dr. Stark earned a doctorate in Cognitive Psychology from Carnegie Mellon University. He is a Professor of Neurobiology & Behavior, the James L. McGaugh Chair in Neurobiology of Learning & Memory, and serves as Director of the UCI Campus Center for Neuroimaging and the state-of-the-art Facility for Imaging and Brain Research (FIBRE). Dr. Stark’s research utilizes brain imaging and experimental psychology to increase understanding of long-term memory in humans, particularly those affected by age-related brain diseases, like Alzheimer’s.
