Research Summary

View my most recent research

Dr. Quiroz's research is focused on the study of age-related cognitive and brain changes that may predispose individuals to develop dementia later in life. Understanding the pathophysiology of neurodegeneration and identifying preclinical biomarkers for early diagnosis of dementia, especially as measured by neuropsychology and neuroimaging, are fundamental goals for her research. Her current studies use multimodal neuroimaging (e.g. PET, sMRI, fMRI, DTI) and integrate genetic, molecular and neuropsychological data to characterize some of the earliest changes associated with dementia.
