    Miguel Angel Santos is a clinical research fellow at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. His research focuses on studying the underlying cognitive mechanisms and neuroanatomy of both speech and limb apraxia present in patients across different neurodegenerative disease syndromes. To do this, he aims to apply neuroscientific methods to patient evaluation and diagnosis. His research methodology includes correlation of neuropsychological and psychophysics behavioral measures with brain images using various neuroimaging analysis techniques. He works primarily with Dr. Gorno-Tempini in the Language Neurobiology Lab, Dr. Rabinovici in a cohort study of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and Dr. Sabes in his sensorymotor integration and learning lab. He was born in Washington DC where he lived until moving to Spain at the age of 17. He completed medical school at the University of Salamanca and the Neurology residency at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau in Barcelona, Spain. He joined the UCSF Memory and Aging center in January 2013. His research is supported by a grant from the Alfonso Martin Escudero Foundation based in Madrid, Spain.
