Dr. Hwamee Oh is a cognitive neuroscientist studying cognitive and neural bases of human memory and how the memory system changes with aging and Alzheimer’s disease, with a special emphasis on preclinical older adults. Dr. Oh uses cognitive neuroscience/experimental methods and multimodal neuroimaging techniques combining functional, structural and diffusion MRI with amyloid and tau PET. Dr. Oh serves as the Director of Imaging Research in the MAP and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. She received her PhD in Biopsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience from the State University of New York - Stony Brook, in 2009. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship on the neuroscience of aging and Alzheimer’s disease at UC Berkeley, working with Dr. William Jagust. Prior to joining us, she was Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and Taub Institute at Columbia University from 2014-2017, and then Research Assistant Professor at SUNY- Stony Brook from 2017-2019. The overarching goal of Dr. Oh’s research is to understand neurocognitive underpinnings of Alzheimer’s disease pathology and develop early behavioral and neuroimaging markers that help identify individuals at higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia.
