January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and Carleton experts are available to discuss related topics.

Matthew Holahan
Professor, Department of Neuroscience

Phone: 613-520-2600, ext. 1543
Email: Matthew.Holahan@carleton.ca

Holahan’s research interests include learning and memory, development, neurodegeneration, psychopharmacology, toxicology and concussions. The Holahan Lab’s current research includes the effects of low doses of phthalates on hippocampal development; pre-clinical models of Parkinson’s disease and novel treatments; the role of nucleus accumbens and deficits in behavioral inhibition; remote spatial memories during the juvenile period and how glutamate receptor blockade during development can effect spatial memories; as well as concussion research.

Holahan has taught the course Neurodegeneration and Aging, which includes the topic of Alzheimer’s.

Bruce Wallace
Adjunct Professor, Department of Systems and Computer Engineering

Phone: 613-520-2600, ext. 4260
Email: Wally@sce.carleton.ca

Wallace is the executive director of the Sensors and Analytics for Monitoring Mobility and Memory (SAM3) hub, which conducts innovative research on the application of technology-based solutions to enable an aging population to maintain a healthy and independent lifestyle. SAM3’s work on technology solutions related to memory will contribute to assisting individuals with dementia, including those with Alzheimer’s.

Wallace’s research expertise includes biomedical engineering; bioinstrumentation; biomedical applications of sensors and systems; cognition measurement; assisted living; and the challenges of aging.

Amedeo D’Angiulli
Professor, Department of Neuroscience

Phone: 613-520-2600, ext. 2954
Email: Amedeo.Dangiulli@carleton.ca

D’Angiulli’s interdisciplinary research includes cognitive neuropsychology, developmental science, sociology of education and educational psychology, among other topics.

D’Angiulli is available to discuss his research on neuro-inflammation and developmental environmental neurotoxicology, in particular air pollution and its role in Alzheimer’s disease.
