He came to Alaska in early November to for the 2011 Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska Research Forum to discuss the link between Traumatic Brain Injury and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Gatson is currently participating in some of the first clinical studies in the world attempting to prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia from developing in individuals who have experienced a traumatic brain injury. In this edition of Aging in Alaska, our host, Lisa Wawrzonek interviews Dr. Gatson about his work and new developments in the field of Alzheimer’s research.
