  • Study of the dynamical properties of plaques using cellular automata models. Dynamic deposition of Amyloid beta.
  • Effects on the curvature and width of dendrites close to or within Amyloid Plaques.
  • Dynamic evolution of plaques: amyloid clustering . Study of the clustering of amyloid in brains of transgenic mice.
  • Study of positional correlations between neurons.
  • Study of possible correlations between plaques and neurons.
  • List of publications.
