Research Summary
Dr. Gomperts's clinical and basic research focuses on Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and Alzheimer's disease. In human studies, he explores the basis for cognitive impairment in Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies with brain imaging of pathogenic processes, such as the accumulation of beta-amyloid and the loss of dopamine neurons projecting to brain regions that subserve cognition. In animal models, he uses large scale, multi-electrode recordings of brain cell activity together with optogenetic tools to investigate how Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and Alzheimer's disease impair brain function.
