    Research Summary

    Dr. Gottesman's lab work focuses on the cognitive impacts of stroke and other vascular disease, both in the short-term and the long-term, and on the association between vascular disease and dementia (including Alzheimer's disease). She evaluates this in large community-based populations, as well as smaller hospital-based studies, and has particular interest in neuroimaging as a way to evaluate cerebrovascular changes in the brain, as well as neurodegenerative changes in the brain, such as those due to Alzheimer's disease.
