Alzheimer's Disease: Beyond Memory 

Houston: Monday 27th October

Andrea Tales

Educated at Bristol and Oxford universities, Professor Andrea Tales worked in both Clinical Sciences and Psychology at Bristol University until joining Swansea in 2012.

Andrea's particular interest is the characterisation of mild and subjective cognitive impairment. Her research has shown that, in addition to changes in memory, a wide range of vision and attention-related brain functions can also be significantly abnormal in the very early stages of Alzheimer's disease. Such findings highlight a wider scope for interventional strategies and early disease markers.
