Research Description

Dr. Browndyke is dual trained in cognitive neuroscience/neuroimaging and clinical neuropsychology. Recent research collaborations involve structural/functional neuroimaging connectivity techniques to assist in dementia diagnosis; characterization of cardiac post-operative cognitive decline; and imaging biomarkers of late-life genetic risk for dementia. In addition, Dr. Browndyke has ongoing forensic practice at the Durham VA Medical Center and has published on the neuroanatomical bases of memory errors, deception and malingering.
