Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration
2) The mechanisms underlying the ‘spread’ of pathogenesis through anatomicall connected brain
regions in Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease
3) The role of glial cells in neurodegeneration
4) Tau protein dysregulation and its relationship to impaired cognition in ageing and dementia
5) The use of technology to facilitate learning in higher education
