Event Details

Presenter:

 

Dr. Carmela Tartaglia

Dr. Tartaglia received her medical degree from McGill University, completed her residency at the University of Western Ontario and did three years of clinical/research fellowship in Cognitive/Behavioral neurology at the University of California, San Francisco Memory and Aging Center. Her clinical and research interests lie in neurodegenerative diseases with a focus on Frontotemporal dementia. She uses imaging, fluid biomarkers and genetics to better understand the pathological substrates that cause cognitive, behavioral and motoric dysfunction. The ultimate goal of her research program is to provide early, pathology-specific treatments to her patients.

An emerging interest of Dr. Tartaglia is the role of head trauma (concussion) in dementia, both in athletes and in members of the general population.
