Webinar: Therapy to reduce the risk of dementia in Parkinson’s disease
November 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Associate Professor Nadeeka Dissanayaka will be hosting a webinar about Therapy to reduce the risk of dementia in Parkinson’s disease.
Associate Professor Nadeeka Dissanayaka is a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Boosting Dementia Research Leadership Fellow, and heads the Dementia & Neuro Mental Health Research Unit at the University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Research (UQCCR). She holds adjunct appointments at Psychology, UQ, and Department of Neurology, Royal Brisbane & Woman’s Hospital. Her research examines methods to improve identification and treatment of neuropsychiatric manifestations in Parkinson’s disease, and uses neuroimaging and biofeedback mechanisms to optimize treatment outcomes. She has developed a number of cognitive and emotion paradigms to elicit underpinning neural mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease using EEG and fMRI methods.
The webinar will focus on our current clinical trial examining a repurposed Therapy to Reduce dementia risk In Parkinson’s disease project (TRIP study).
