I am collaborating with Dr. Concepcion Padilla to investigate the interplay between distinct pathological processes (e.g. amyloid burden and cortical thinning) and how they map onto clinical impairment in Down’s Syndrome. Specifically, my interest lies in the use of multivariate approaches to delineate the spatially-distributed relationships between components of amyloid burden and patterns of grey matter atrophy. In addition, I will use network mapping techniques and graph theory to investigate the extent to which the connectional architecture of structural networks predicts the topography of amyloid deposition in Down’s syndrome.
