Dr Howie Rosen
University of California San Francisco, USA

Dr. Rosen is a behavioral neurologist and holds the Dorothy Kirsten French Foundation Endowed Professorship for Parkinsonian and Other Neurodegenerative Disorders.

Dr. Rosen’s primary research interest is in the effects that atypical neurodegenerative diseases, in particular frontotemporal dementia, have on the brain, especially the emotional systems. His current projects use psychophysiology and imaging to examine how these diseases affect self-awareness and to determine how imaging and other biological markers can be used to track and to anticipate how these diseases affect the brain over time. He is also the director of education and outreach for the education core at UCSF’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
