Thesis title: Examining cognitive dysfunction in cerebral small vessel disease, its predictors and clinical co-associates.

Research summary

My PhD thesis is exploring how cognitive ability is affected in cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). Specifically, I am interested in investigating whether or not there is a certain pattern or 'profile' of cognitive impairment associated with SVD. I am also exploring the relationship between cognitive ability and the structural brain changes that underlie SVD.
