Anna Brugulat-Serrat, PhD

Neuropsychologist

To reduce the impact of dementia, we must improve primary prevention in health policies and improve the general brain health status of the population.

Current Work

Anna is a Neuropsychologist focused on Alzheimer's disease prevention at the Barcelonabeta Brain Research Center (BBRC) in Barcelona, Spain.

Personal Hero

Her parents, Frida Kahlo, Steve Jobs

Words of Strength

Commitment, building relationships, openness, resilience

Vision

To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, Anna believes we need to include primary prevention in health policies and improve the general brain health status of the population.

Strategy

Anna is studying the efficacy of remote cognitive tests in cognitively unimpaired individuals to identify those at risk of Alzheimer's disease. This will contribute to promote equity and to reduce disparities in dementia prevention.

Motivation

The high prevalence of Alzheimer's disease (AD) makes it crucial to improve the early identification of individuals at higher risk of cognitive decline that could benefit from their participation in dementia prevention interventions to reduce or delay the onset of AD.

Education & Experience
