Adult Neuropsychology Research

The adult neuropsychology laboratory at National Jewish Health has a number of ongoing projects and research interests.

These include:

  • Neuropsychological functioning in autoimmune disorders including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)
  • Immunological correlates of cognitive dysfunction in autoimmune disease
  • Neuroimaging and cognition in autoimmune disorders- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and functional MRI (fMRI)
  • White matter abnormalities in autoimmune disorders
  • Cardiopulmonary correlates of cognitive dysfunction in SLE and COPD
  • Impact of exercise treatment on cognitive function in SLE and COPD
  • Behavioral correlates (depression, pain, fatigue and sleep disorders) of cognitive dysfunction in medical populations
  • Functional and structural neuroimaging in sleep apnea
  • Cognition and sleep at altitude
  • Neuropsychological outcome measures following myocardial revascularization: on and off cardiopulmonary bypass
  • Changes in cognition following long-term oxygen therapy in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Cognitive function following pulmonary rehabilitation for patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
