I study neurovascular coupling, which is the link between blood flow and neural activity in the brain. When your brain cells become active they require a constant supply of blood to meet the increasing energy demands. My research uses pre-clinical models of human disease to characterise neurovascular function in dementia, and how cardiovascular disease affects the speed, severity, and progression of Alzheimer's disease. In the hope that we may be able to decelerate the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
