"Brain tissue responses to amyloid accumulation in early Alzheimer's disease - insight from transgenic mouse models"
Short biosketch: "I have over 30 years of experience in various in vivo electrophysiological recording techniques in primates and rodents, including EEG and local field potentials, evoked potentials, and multiple single unit recordings. My major research interest has always been the neural mechanisms of memory and memory disorders. During the past 15 years, my research has focused on preclinical models of Alzheimer's disease utilizing genetically modified mice. Our research has combined electrophysiological recordings in freely moving rats/mice, behavioral assessment and careful post-mortem histopathological assessment. More recently, we have also combined morphological analysis and EEG recordings with in vivo structural and functional MRI in collaboration with Professor Olli Gröhn. I am also the head of the Phenotyping core facility at Biocenter Kuopio, which is one of six Biocenters in Finland."
