Stanford Center for Memory Disorders


Katrin Andreasson, MDKatrin Andreasson, MD
Michael Greicius, MD, MPH
Dr. Greicius is a neurologist with a focus on Alzheimer's and other dementias, and is the Medical Director of the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders. He is pioneering new imaging methods that will allow the detection of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases at earlier stages then is currently possible. These novel detection methods will make possible the application of future therapies designed to delay or prevent dementias.
Victor W. Henderson, MD Victor W. Henderson, MD
Dr. Henderson is a geriatric and behavioral neurologist with clinical expertise in age-associated memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, and other forms of dementia. His research interests focus on the identification of risk factors for age-associated cognitive decline and dementia, and on therapeutic strategies to improve cognitive function in aging and dementia.
Geoffrey A. Kerchner, MD, PhDGeoffrey A. Kerchner, MD, PhD
Dr. Kerchner is a behavioral neurologist who cares for patients with Alzheimer's disease and other age-related neurodegenerative illnesses. In his research, he focuses on the use of ultra-high field MRI and other advanced neuroimaging technologies to reveal how these diseases affect the microscopic structure and circuitry of the brain, with the intent of creating new strategies for early diagnosis. Dr. Kerchner also supervises the participation of patients in clinical trials for Alzheimer's disease.
Frank M. Longo, MD, PhDFrank M. Longo, MD, PhD
Dr. Longo is Professor and Chair of the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences. Dr. Longo's research program is developing new treatments designed to prevent the onset or delay the progression of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders.
Kathleen Poston, MD, MSKathleen Poston, MD, MS
Dr. Poston is a neurologist specializing in movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, and Corticobasal Degeneration. She has a particular clinical and research interest on the cognitive manifestations of these disorders.
Sharon Sha, MDSharon Sha, MD, MS
Dr. Sha is a neurologist specializing in neurodegenerative diseases including rare types of dementia and movement disorders. Her research interests include cognitive impairment in movement disorders, clinical trials for dementia, and the identification of biomarkers for genetic forms of frontotemporal dementia.
