Deniz Erten-Lyons M.D.

Dr. Erten-Lyons is associate professor of neurology at Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Erten-Lyons' research focuses on understanding why some individuals age with minimal or no cognitive decline. She is interested in identifying genes which affect brain morphology and function in late life, and the role genetics plays in cognitive reserve. She has received research support from the Veterans Affairs, the Alzheimer's Association and the Medical Research Foundation of Oregon.
