Research Interests

Dr. Stebbins' research interests center on the effects of normal and pathological aging on cognitive function in humans. Using advanced neuroimaging (e.g., fMRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, SPECT) and behavioral techniques, studies are designed to assess the relationship between structural and functional changes in the CNS and age-related behavioral changes. Specific areas of interest include the contribution of white matter microstructural integrity to cortical and subcortical gray matter function during executive and declarative memory performance.

Current research focuses on four areas: 1) Dissociation of cortical and sub-cortical contributions of executive working memory impairments in patients with movement disorders. 2) Delineation of medial temporal lobe functional activity during declarative memory performance in patients with Alzheimer's disease, mild cognitive impairment, 3). Examining the contribution of "normal appearing" white matter integrity to perceptual motor processing speed and executive working memory performance in patients with ischemic stroke. 4). Decomposing the influence of lesion pathology on cognitive function in patients with multiple sclerosis.
