Research Description

Dr. Sorg’s research investigates the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) on cognition (e.g., prospective memory and executive functions) via neuropsychological assessment and neural structural consequences of the injury via neuroimaging (e.g., structural, diffusion MRI and functional MRI). He also pursues a parallel line of research aimed at using multimodal neuroimaging data to improve diagnostic accuracy in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
