Aaron Wilber talks on mouse models, Alzheimer’s disease, and brain function during sleep in the next ISL Brown Bag on October 25
You are invited to hear Aaron Wilber, Ph.D., speak on “Findings in mouse models suggest Alzheimer’s disease may change brain function during sleep leading to memory loss and impairments in navigating our surroundings.”

Dr. Wilber is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, is affiliated with the Program in Neuroscience and is a Faculty Affiliate of the Institute for Successful Longevity.
Dr. Wilber earned his doctorate from Indiana University in 2010. His research is directed at understanding how we get oriented in space so we can navigate our environment and what goes wrong when this system fails. He is currently exploring why Alzheimer’s disease leads to difficulty navigating new surroundings, what brain changes may underlie getting lost, and treatments for reversing these impairments.
