4th Leonard Berg Symposium
Early Detection of Alzheimer's Disease: Structural, Functional & Molecular Neuroimaging
September 19-20, 2003
Chase Park Plaza Hotel, St. Louis, Missouri, USA
The Charles F. and Joanne Knight Alzheimer's Disease Research Center
Department of Neurology, Washington University School of Medicine
Supported in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer, Inc.
Physicians, dementia specialists, neuroscientists, university medical/science faculty, advanced trainees (i.e., graduate students, fellows, medical residents), scientists and professionals from industry, neuropsychologists, and other professional or lay individuals with interests in neuroimaging and/or the early detection of dementing disorders.
Objectives of the Symposium:
- To showcase current and emerging findings in the application of neuroimaging techniques to the early detection and quantification of Alzheimer's-related changes in the brain.
- To highlight promising avenues for future research within and across neuroimaging paradigms - structural, functional and molecular.
- To serve as a catalyst for scientific communication and cross-fertilization in this growing and diverse field.
