Andrew (Andy) Aschenbrenner, PhD is an Instructor of Neurology at Washington University in St. Louis. He has expertise in the development, administration, and analysis of cognitive and behavioral tests in healthy older adults and individuals with preclinical and very mild Alzheimer disease (AD). His current interests include evaulating the utility of intraindividual variability in cognition and personality as predictors of AD risk. He is also interested in applying novel statistical techniques (e.g., dynamic structural equation modeling) and computational models to further understand cognitive changes in the earliest stages of AD.

Dr. Prusaczyk’s research focuses on improving the health and healthcare of older adults, particularly vulnerable older adults such as those with dementia or those living in rural areas, through the use of implementation science and data and technology. Specifically, her research focuses on the implementation of evidence-based practices and policies that improve care at the intersection of the health and social service settings. She is also interested in using social network analysis to understand care coordination and communication among health and social service providers.

Cyrus A. Raji, MD, PhD is an assistant professor of radiology and a principal investigator in the Neuroimaging Labs Research Center at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR), the academic radiology department of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Raji, also a professor neurology, serves as director of neuromagnetic resonance imaging at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and as associate director of the diagnostic radiology residency research track. He is board certified in diagnostic radiology and neuroradiology with research interests focusing on modifiable risk factors for dementia and the role of advanced neuroimaging in quantitatively tracking related brain changes.

Dr. Muriah Wheelock is currently an Instructor in the Department of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis. She obtained her PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she studied the behavioral and neural response to psychosocial stress using functional and structural connectivity analysis. During her postdoctoral training in Developmental Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis, she utilized graph theory to determine brain networks underlying healthy and disordered cognitive and behavioral development. Through additional postdoctoral training in Translational Sciences at Washington University, she gained experience with technology innovation. Her BRAIN Initiative project is focused on developing and disseminating network level analysis methods for connectome-wide association studies. These tools will be useful for connectome analysis across species, across the lifespan, and for understanding healthy and disordered cognition and behavior.
