Interaction Between the Progression of Alzheimer’s Dementia and Circadian Disturbances: A 13-Year Longitudinal Study in Community-Based Older Adults, at SLEEP 2019, San Antonio, Wednesday, June 12, 2019

An oral presentation discussing the interaction between Alzheimer's progression and circadian disturbances. The medical media Medscape News covered this presentation with title "Circadian Rhythm Disturbances May Be an Alzheimer's Marker". See more about the news piece.

Degraded Circadian Regulation Predicts Incident Physical Disability and All-Cause Mortality in Community-Based Older Adults, at SLEEP 2019, San Antonio, Monday, June 10, 2019

This is an oral presentation. The results indicate that disturbances in circadian rhythms appears to be a predictor of physical disability and mortality in older adults. This presentation has been covered by the medical media DocGuide. See the news here.

Fractal motor regulation and adverse health consequences, at the 10th Annual Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center ROSMAP Investigator's Meeting, Chicago, Monday, April 15, 2019
I was invited to give a 15-min oral presentation on our research about fractal motor regulation. I presented new results we obtained resently about the association between fractal motor regulation and future incidence of adverse health outcomes. A manuscript related to these results is currently under review.
Brain correlates of fractal regulation in motor activity, at Society for Neuroscience Conference, San Diego, Monday, November 5, 2018

A poster presentation on my most updated findings on the brain correlates of fractal activity regulation. I was given a Trainee Professional Development Award during the conference.

Degraded fractal activity regulation predicts elevated risk of Alzheimer's disease in the elderly, at SLEEP 2018, Baltimore, Tuesday, June 5, 2018:
A poster presentation explaining the work about fractal activity regulation and its predictability of Alzheimer's dementia and cognitive decline. Results have been officially published in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. Please click here to read more.

Degraded fractal activity regulation is associated with reduced regional cortical gray matter volumes--Beyond the brain correlates of sleep fragmentation, at SLEEP 2018, Baltimore, Tuesday, June 5, 2018
A poster presentation on my most recent findings about the brain correlates of fractal activity regulation. In briefly, we identified 15 brain regions/subregions from the structure MRI scans that showed associations with the fractal activity patterns at time scale < 90 min. Linear regression models adjusted for age, sex, and years of education explain on average 20% the variation of the gray matter volumes of these regions. Working on manuscript right now.
Fractal regulation and dementia-related pathologies, at the 9th Annual Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center ROSMAP Investigator's Meeting, Chicago, Wednesday, May 30, 2018

An invited 15-min talk focusing on my recent research on the fractal regulation and brain pathology. I briefly reviewed the published paper "Fractal activity regulation and incident Alzheimer's disease in elderly individuals" (Openly accessible online via https://www.alzheimersanddementia.com/article/S1552-5260(18)30108-0/fulltext) and some of my working papers. Then I talked about many preliminary data regarding the link between fractal regulation and brain pathology.
