Dr. Jacobs current main interests are focused on understanding the disease mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease by investigating the interaction of biomarkers and other brain changes, such as structural and functional connectivity, and how these mechanisms relate to cognitive changes.
She also has a strong interest in understanding the modulatory effect of brainstem nuclei, in particular the locus coeruleus, on cognition and brain integrity within the context of aging and dementia.
