Aging effects on neural activity in cognitively impaired HIV-infected individuals


  • There are differences in the relationships between age and neural responses in the parieto-occipital cortices of impaired HIV-infected participants relative to their peers.

Why this matters

  • Individuals with HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) can experience substantial impairments to their visuospatial processing. The results of this study will help with the understanding of the neural dynamics leading to these impairments and have the potential to enhance diagnosis of HAND, inform prognoses, and further describe HAND subtypes.
