Dr. Helena Blumen of Albert Einstein College of Medicine presents “Trajectories and Modifiable Risk factors of Brain, Gait and Cognitive Decline in Aging and Preclinical Dementia”.
Dr. Helena Blumen is cognitive neuroscientist with expertise and training in cognitive and motor aging, magnetic resonance imaging and clinical research methods. Dr. Blumen completed her Ph.D in Cognitive Psychology at Stony Brook University in 2008 and an MS in Clinical Research Methods at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2018. She also completed a T32 NIH/NIA postdoctoral fellowship in the Neuropsychology of Cognition in Aging Training Program at Columbia University Medical Center in 2011, and a neuroimaging fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2013. Dr. Blumen is currently an associate professor of Medicine (Geriatrics) and Neurology (Division of Cognitive and Motor Aging) at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.The overall theme of Dr. Bumen’s research is to optimize gait and cognition in aging. She examines the potential for using collaboration, computer-based actions games, motor imagery and social dancing as a tool to improve cognition and mobility in aging and pre-dementia. The ultimate goal of these laboratory-based studies is to develop and test interventions that can be used to optimize cognition in community-dwellling older adults, and older adults that reside in nursing homes or naturally-occurring retirement communities.
