Dr. Kramer is the Director of the Memory and Aging Center Neuropsychology program at UCSF and has been extensively involved in studying the cognitive changes associated with brain disorders for the past three decades. He has co-authored widely used neuropsychological measures of memory and executive functioning. Much of his work has been devoted to identifying the different ways in which aging and neurodegenerative diseases affect memory and other abilities and in utilizing these differences to improve differential diagnosis in clinic.
Dr. Kramer's active areas of research use neuroimaging, neuropsychology, neuroimmunology, and genetics to study the underlying biological mechanisms of cognitive aging, the cognitive effects of cerebrovascular disease and frontotemporal dementia, and the relationships between cognitive functioning, behavioral control, and reward systems.
Specific learning objectives:
- Participants will be able to identify the distinguishes characteristics of different forms of progressive aphasia
- Participants will understand the contributions of cognitive and non-cognitive changes in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia
- Participants will have an overview of the clinical, molecular, and genetic features of different neurodegenerative syndromes
- Participants will be able to identify some of the brain-behavioral relationships gleaned from neurodegenerative disease research
