Cognition and Behavior Unit

"We are working to advance in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, to analyze the genetic factors that influence its development and to study the role of new drugs".


In the Cognition and Behavior Unit the patient receives multidisciplinary care capable of offering a quick diagnosis.

For a complete approach to these diseases we have state-of-the-art technology, offering a precise diagnosis thanks to 3Teslas high field magnetic resonance, PET with amyloid and other radiotracers and the study of biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid.

Along with pharmacological treatments, we offer cognitive stimulation in presence and online. In addition, we have clinical trials aimed at patients with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's type dementia.
