Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Memory aging and Alzheimer's disease

Older people usually experience memory decline, and memory loss is also one of the most common symptoms in Alzheimer's disease and other dementia. In this project, we will review the literature and summarize the findings on how memory changes with age in normal older people and people developing Alzheimer's disease.

Neuroimaging in research

The development of neuroimaging has helped researchers to better understand the structure and the function of the brain. Particularly, the use of advanced neuroimaging methods allows researchers to track brain changes as people developing certain diseases. In this project, we will review papers using different neuroimaging tools and how they helped advance our knowledge of Alzheimer's disease.
