Beth Shaaban, MPH, PhD student in Neuropidemiology will lead the discussion. Ted Huppert, PhD, PI of the NIRS Brain Imaging Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh will be present to help us understand the interplay of CBF, CBV, CBRO2, and CVR, implications on BOLD imaging methods, and consequences of aging and disease for these markers.

The Epidemiology of Brain Resilience in Aging (e-BRAIN) program and the Claude D. Pepper Center at the University of Pittsburgh sponsor the epiBRAIN Journal club, a multidisciplinary Journal Club to explore the application of neuroimaging methods in the context of aging and population studies, with a specific focus on advances in MRI and their neuroanatomical correlates in the aging brain. The Journal Club draws on expertise in Epidemiology, Psychiatry, Psychology, Rehabilitation Sciences, Biomedical Engineering Geriatric Medicine and Neuroscience.
