Statistical analyses can reveal important patterns in neuroscience data but can also lead us into error. This webinar will give practical advice on issues that often come up during statistical reviews of manuscripts—it will explain the most common pitfalls and how to avoid them. Topics will include covariate selection, sample-size planning, and p-value interpretation. The workshop will consist of short talks from experienced statistical reviewers and an interactive discussion.

Sedentary behavior is on the rise, resulting in an increased prevalence of preventable life-limiting diseases, including those affecting the brain. This is despite evidence showing that physical activity is one of the most important modifiable lifestyle factors that supports good brain health throughout life and improves quality of life in old age. In this webinar, we will discuss different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis.

Kenneth Kosik will discuss international research that meshes clinical experience with molecular biology and neurogenetics. This work focuses on the largest kindred of familial Alzheimer’s disease in the world and is the basis of a trial for a prevent drug administered before the onset of dementia symptoms. The research team has sequenced additional cases with early-onset dementia and uncovered numerous novel mutations. The close relationship of the researchers and families has created a strong compassionate element to the project.
