S4E1 What happens in the brain in dementia?

March 1, 2022

Season 4 focuses on some of the Basics of Dementia. In Episode 1, I am joined by Prof Selina Wray and we are discussing what happens in the brain when someone develops or has dementia.

Selina is a Professor of Molecular Neuroscience and Alzheimer's Research UK Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Neurodegenerative Disease at UCL. Selina’s work is focussed on the use of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology to model dementia, working closely with clinical colleagues to obtain samples from participants with rare, genetic forms of dementia and using these to understand the molecular basis of Alzheimer's Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia.
