My research is aimed at improving our understanding of the mechanisms underlying cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia. A major focus is on the study of social cognition in these disorders. A second focus is on the development of cognitive assessment procedures in dementia. My colleagues and I have written a book on clock drawing that contains a large set of normative data and have developed a mental status examination, called the Behavioural Neurology Assessment, that is suitable for use by physicians in the office setting.This research will have implications for future studies in Alzheimer's disease related to determining the underlying causes, the development of refined diagnostic criteria, and treatment.
