Research Focus

My research focus is in Geriatric Neuropsychiatry. In terms of populations, I have conducted research in Traumatic Brain Injury, Alzheimer's Disease, nursing home patients, Borderline Personality Disorder, and depressed elderly. Behavioural syndromes of interest have included Apathy, Agitation, and Impulsivity. Research methodologies have included Randomized Clinical Trials, Historical Cohort, N of 1, case control, neuroimagining, cognitive testing, and literature reviews.

Geriatric Neuropsychiatry (Brain/Behaviour Relationships),with involvement at clinical, research and teaching levels. More specifically the research foci have included:

  1. Establishing a causal role for brain dysfunction in some patients with Borderline Personality Disorder
  2. Cognitive and behavioural sequelae of Traumatic Brain Injury and their treatment
  3. Cognitive and behavioural sequelae of the dementias and their treatment
  4. Establishing causation in Neuropsychiatry
  5. Predicting and preventing Alzheimer’s Disease
  6. Apathy syndrome
