Alireza Salami’s primary research interest concentrates on the brain basis of cognitive decline in old age. It is critical to find measurement tools that can predict future severe cognitive decline, such as the one typically observed in demented elderly people, as early as possible, before substantial irreversible damage has been caused to the brain. Alireza’s group uses advanced functional magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography in order to explore the functional and molecular bases of cognitive decline in aging.
