Advanced Topics in the Neurobiology of Dementia CAD302

This unit is being phased out, no new enrolments are being taken.

Introduction

This unit will present a range of advanced topics related to the pathology and aetiology of diseases that cause dementia. The unit will focus on contemporary techniques and approaches used across clinical and laboratory settings to understanding the neurobiological basis of neurodegeneration. Academic and research staff of the Wicking Centre will present national and international examples of high-quality neuroscience research, with opportunities for discussion of findings and implications for dementia care.
