Words of Strength

Leadership, collaboration, empathy

Vision

To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, we need to build international networks, cross disciplinary boundaries, and empower basic and implementation science on brain health across underserved regions.

Strategy

Sol’s research combines behavioral and neuroimaging methods to improve the characterization of cognitive and socioemotional processes in neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric conditions. Her work has implications for assessment and intervention.

Impact

As an Atlantic Fellow, Sol aims to lead projects based on the use of technologies like smartphone apps to gain knowledge on risk and protective factors for dementia and reduce barriers in the access to neurocognitive assessment in Latin America.

Motivation

Latin America is facing a rapid growth of dementia. Understanding the influence of social determinants of health on cognition is critical to develop regionally relevant strategies for the prevention and early detection of dementia.
