Emilie Reas, PhD
Emilie Reas, PhD, is a post-doctoral fellow in the Radiology Department at the University of California, San Diego. She studied cognitive neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, before completing her PhD in neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego. As a graduate student, she used functional MRI to understand how the brain's medial temporal lobe supports long-term memory retrieval. As a post-doctoral fellow, she transitioned to the field of aging. Her current work aims to understand the small-scale structural brain changes that occur in normal aging and in the early stages of AD, and how they related to decline in cognitive function.
