Imaging, Aging, and Dementia Laboratory at USC

Welcome to the Imaging, Aging and Dementia Laboratory directed by Dr. Judy Pa.


Our research is focused on identifying genetic and lifestyle risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and developing innovative interventions for improving brain and cognitive health in older adults. Using a combination of cognitive, behavioral, and neuroimaging techniques, our primary goal is Alzheimer’s prevention.

The Imaging, Aging and Dementia Lab (IADL) is an academic research lab at the University of Southern California and a part of the Laboratory of Neuroimaging (LONI) at the Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging Institute in the Keck School of Medicine of USC. Dr. Pa is an Associate Professor in the department of Neurology and a training faculty mentor for Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, and Biokinesiology.
