The recognition that dementia patients have many strengths is the guiding principle in Dr. Bruce Miller's work as a behavioral neurologist.
In his talk for the Mind Science Foundation, Dr. Miller explains both the behavioral and emotional deficits that characterize these patients, while simultaneously noting the visual creativity that can emerge.
Dr. Miller is Professor of Neurology at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). He also serves as the clinical director of the Memory and Aging Center (MAC) at UCSF. Dr. Miller's goal is the delivery of model care to all of the patients who enter the clinical and research programs at the MAC. He has a special interest in brain and behavior relationships and has focused his work in the area of dementia.
