William Jagust is Professor of Public Health and Neuroscience

Research Expertise and Interest
neuroscience, cognition, brain aging, dementia, imaging, Alzheimer's disease

Research Description
The Jagust Lab
is a joint research program involving the UC Berkeley Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, UC Berkeley School of Public Health, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The primary focus of the laboratory is the study of brain aging and dementia. We use multimodal imaging techniques - including positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and functional magnetic resonance - to study the brain. Research participants include normal older and younger individuals and patients with a variety of different dementias. Many students and postdoctoral fellows at all levels participate in research projects. Key projects include imaging the deposition of beta-amyloid and tau in the aging brain, and examining the effects of these aggregated proteins on brain structure and function.
