By In the News

BBC interviewed Andrei Irimia for a story about how our brains change with age and whether we can have an effect on those changes before they occur. He discussed using MRI scans and artificial intelligence to understand the trajectory of both brains that are aging healthily and those in which there is a disease process, such as dementia. “It’s a very sophisticated way to look at patterns that we don’t necessarily know about as humans, but the AI algorithm is able to pick up on them,” he said. The story also ran on BBC Brazil.
