The new Stanford-based Alzheimer's Disease Research Center is up and running!

March 2015

Dr. Greicius participated in Congresswoman Speier’s panel discussion on sex-based differences in Alzheimer’s disease risk.

Learn more about the panel here.


Dr. Greicius was recently featured on ABC Australia Radio, discussing recent work led by Andre Altmann that shows the APOE4 Alzheimer’s risk gene has a greater effect in women than in men. Listen here (starting at 20:00).


February 2015

Dr. Greicius was on NPR's Science Friday discussing work led by the FIND Lab's Andre Altmann exploring the APOExSEX interaction on Alzheimer's disease risk. Listen here.


April 2014

A recent publication from the FIND lab provides further evidence that women who carry the ApoE4 risk allele are at greater risk than male carriers to develop Alzheimer's disease (AD). The findings, published in the Annals of Neurology, show that women with at least one ApoE4 allele are more likely to develop Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) - or progress from MCI to AD - than men with the risk allele. These findings were recently featured in a story on National Public Radio, which can be heard here.


December 2013

Recent FIND Lab work on the salience network was featured in Scientific American and Wired Magazine. Working with Dr. Parvizi’s group in the Epilepsy Division, the team showed that electrically stimulating the anterior mid-cingulate cortex leads to a sense of determination and the "will to persevere." The first-person video account can be seen here.


July 2013

Dr. Michael Greicius' research on the default-mode network was profiled in the "Breakthroughs in Cognitive Neuroscience" series for the Cognitive Neuroscience Society.


September 2012

Dr. Michael Greicius' research and commentary were featured in a Nature article and podcast examining resting-state fMRI.


June 2012

Building on an old, but often overlooked, finding that the ApoE4 risk allele confers greater risk in women than men, the FIND lab has shown that the interaction between ApoE and gender is detectable in the preclinical period. This research is published in the Journal of Neuroscience, and is featured in the following news articles and blogs : Stanford Medicine, the San Francisco Chronicle, Science Daily, Health Canal, EurekAlert, MSN Health, Yahoo! Health


January 2012

The FIND Lab's research on decoding subject-driven cognitive states is featured as the cover article for this month's issue of Cerebral Cortex.


August 2011

The FIND Lab published research showing that resting-state functional connectivity decreases in Alzheimer's patients as their disease progresses. This research suggests that early in the disease, regions of the posterior default mode network disengage whereas regions within the anterior and ventral default mode networks enhance their connectivity.

May 2011

The FIND Lab has developed a novel method to decode cognitive states with fMRI. This method can distinguish cognitive states with high accuracy, and is being refined for use as a diagnostic biomarker for various neurodegenerative disorders. This study is published in Cerebral Cortex, and is featured in the following news articles and blogs: Forbes, Medscape, New Scientist, Science Daily, Stanford Medicine, The Stanford Daily


April 2011

FIND Lab PI, Dr. Michael Greicius, delivered a plenary session lecture at the American Academy of Neurology meeting on resting-state fMRI in the differential diagnosis of dementia.

Video from the Advances in Resting-State fMRI Symposium is now available online.


July 2009

The FIND Lab's work was featured in a recent ScienceNews article on the default mode network: You Are Who You Are by Default


June 2009

The Advances in Resting-State Symposium, hosted by the FIND Lab, took place at Stanford University on June 17, 2009. Over 200 researchers from around the world attended. A video of the talks will be available soon. Please see the website for more information.
