• Center for Alzheimer's Research Care, Imaging, & Research

    One of the center's major goals is conducting research to better understand the causes of Alzheimer's disease and related memory disorders. Research at CACIR focuses on neuroimaging, clinical trials to examine the effectiveness of new drugs and treatments, and studies that examine the clinical features and pathophysiology of Alzheimer's and related memory disorders.

  • Headache Physiology Lab

    The Brennan Lab mission is to understand the mechanisms of migraine and post-traumatic headache. These related disorders are commonly understood as ‘only’ headache, but they are much more, involving disruptions in all the senses, activation of stress responses and for many patients a transition to a chronic pain state.
