Noam Alperin came to the University of Miami in May 2009 from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He obtained his Graduate Degree from the University of Chicago’s Medical Physics program. Dr. Alperin’s research focuses on blood and CSF flow dynamics using flow sensitive MRI techniques. A primary aim of the research is to provide noninvasively, important physiologic parameters among which are cerebral blood perfusion and intracranial pressure. These parameters play impotent role in a wide range of neurological problems, including hydrocephalous and stroke. Since joining the University of Miami, Dr. Alperin’ Advance Image Processing laboratory is working closely with the Evelyn F. McKnight Center for Age Related Memory Loss, using different MRI modalities to characterize and quantify morphologic and physiologic changes in the brain associated with aging as well as the coupling between age related brain tissue volume loss and cerebral blood flow decrease.

Dr. Bonnie Levin is the Alexandria and Bernard Schoninger Professor of Neurology and Director of the Division of Neuropsychology in the Department of Neurology at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. She received her BS from Georgetown University and her PhD from Temple University. She completed an internship at the Boston Children’s Hospital where she was a clinical fellow in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and an externship at the Boston VA Hospital.

Dr. Levin is a neuropsychologist whose research examines neurocognitive and affective changes associated with neurodegenerative disease and the normative aging process. Her work examines the role of cardiometabolic risk factors in cognitive decline. Another focus has been the inter-relationship between behavioral and motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease and the neural circuitry underlying memory and age related cognitive change. Her current work is aimed to advance our understanding of frontal striatal circuit function in cognition and to generate data that will improve our knowledge of key clinical parameters associated with differential rates of cognitive decline. Current projects include: examining which components of the metabolic syndrome predict cognition, identifying imaging and clinical correlates of white matter changes associated with the aging process and linking structural and metabolic markers underlying different symptom profiles in neurodegenerative disease.
