The research focus of Tanis J. Ferman, Ph.D., emphasizes Lewy body dementia, with the primary goals of improving diagnostic accuracy, distinguishing Lewy body dementia from other forms of neurodegenerative disease, developing tools to track symptoms over time, determining the clinical and cognitive correlates of Lewy body dementia in relation to imaging markers, and improving understanding of the underlying pathologic mechanisms.
Early identification of Lewy body dementia and the prediction of treatment trajectory is critical to facilitate proper treatment, to avoid iatrogenic complications, and to help families, patients and treatment providers understand the multiple facets of this condition. Early detection of Lewy body dementia also helps provide a useful therapeutic window for new therapies.
