Four laboratories pursue different but related areas of research on aging and cognition. Chertkow’s lab investigates early diagnosis of dementia and memory loss, focusing on imaging and cognitive neuroscience studies. The Phillips laboratory extends into electrophysiological measures of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Alexander Thiel’s lab concentrates on stroke, another neurological disease of the elderly. He is focused on neuro-imaging and magnetic studies of stroke recovery. Howard Bergman’s laboratory examines health services delivery for the elderly. Dr. Thiel has been awarded a prestigious Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI ) award to develop his laboratory. In 2010 Drs. Chertkow and Phillips received (with colleague Ziad Nasreddine) recognition from the Thomson Reuters’ Essential Science Indicators for having published the most cited paper in the research area of “Mild Cognitive Impairment” in the 2006-2009 period.
