The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has awarded Dr. Bart Rypma, an associate professor at the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas at Dallas, a more than $490,000 grant to study how changes in blood flow in the brain might affect cognition in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
BrainHealth’s founder and chief director, Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, discusses how the Center’s research reveals that the detrimental effects of poverty on cognition can be mitigated and potentially overcome after short-term, targeted intervention.
In its tenth year, the Symposium highlighted neurology and advances made in computational psychiatry, an emerging field that seeks to use neurobiological information to inform individualized therapies.
Dr. Bart Rypma is quoted in the AARP Staying Sharp story about the importance of gratitude in relationships. Recent research from his lab by lead author Nick Hubbard that investigates the relationship between depressive thoughts and memory is cited.
