Words of Strength

Leadership, Collaboration, Empathy


To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, we need to build international networks, cross disciplinary boundaries, and embrace diversity in science. 


Sol’s research combines behavioral and neuroimaging methods to improve the characterization of sociocognitive processes in brain health and disease, with a focus on underrepresented populations from Latin America.


As an Atlantic Fellow, Sol aims to scale-up brain health assessment and dementia detection across Latin American countries using technologies like smartphone apps.


Latin America is facing a rapid growth of dementia. Understanding how disparity-related factors impact cognition is critical to develop regionally relevant strategies for the prevention and early detection of dementia.
