This is the second of our podcasts recorded on location at the Alzheimer Association International Conference (AAIC) in Chicago. Each day we will be bringing you news and information from our panellists who are all presenting and attending the world largest dementia conference.
Today’s podcast is again hosted by our own programme lead Adam Smith (he is hosting them all week), he is joined by Sarah Gregory a study coordinator for the EPAD and Prevent studies at the University of Edinburgh, Nika Seblova a PhD student working on the casual effects of education on life-course cognitive ability and dementia at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and Ivanna Pavisic who is a PhD student at University College London focusing on different neurocognitive assessments.
The panel discuss their own presentations, if Chicago Pizza is real pizza…and their highlights from the second fantastic day here at the AAIC, including sessions on ‘Multimodal strategies for dementia prevention’ and the ‘aging brain and the risk for Alzheimer’s disease’ by Denise C Park at the University of Texas. We also discuss the effects of television on cognition and the fantastic ISTAART breakfast session by the Alliance of Women Alzheimer’s Researchers also known as AWARE discussing mentorship
