A seminar was held dated on 16th, April 2019 at the Department of Cognitive neuroscience, which was attended together by students of Cognitive Neuroscience as well as students of Yang Ming University. The guest speaker of the seminar was Dr. Yu-Ling Chang, Associate Professor at the Department of Psychology in National Taiwan University, Taiwan. He welcomed to the participants and presented an interesting topic “Early Detection of Alzheimer’s disease: Interindividual Variability in Cognitive and Brain Aging” to all.

Dr. Chang shared her views about the Alzheimer’s disease. In the beginning of the lecture, she talked that it is important for family, individual and medical reason to accurately and efficiently predict the Alzheimer’s disease in the pre-clinical stage. She shared the prevalence and evidence of Alzheimer’s disease among elder people in Taiwan. She also shared the important findings of her research. First, interindividual differences are able to be observed on cognitive and brain measurements. Second, the cognitive variability in elderly cannot be observed if the cognitive measure was not sensitive enough. Third, from imaging data on Alzheimer’s disease patients, she suggested that vascular regulatory mechanism to compensate for altered brain metabolism and increased need for glucose and oxygen in order to achieve a similar level of cognitive performance. The seminar was ended with a Question and Answering session; the students show more interest in her talks by asking more questions. By attending the seminar, we hope we can acquire a view in preventive of Alzheimer’s disease.
