Presented by Professor Simon Lewis

Experience first-hand one of the classes that may form your future course at the University of Sydney. Postgraduate masterclasses are your opportunity to join a class from the actual course curriculum, delivered by a leading academic from the program.

Predicting Dementia and Parkinson's

This talk will look at aspects of brain and mind ageing science and ways in which we can predict dementia and Parkinson’s disease. We will look at some case examples of the clinical presentations and pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, vascular dementia and frontotemporal dementia.

This class is delivered as part of BMRI5012 Brain Ageing, a unit of study in the Master of Brain and Mind Sciences.
