Brice McConnell, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, where he is involved with clinical trials at the CU Alzheimer's and Cognition Center and sees patients in the Memory Disorders Clinic. Dr. McConnell earned his medical doctorate at University of Colorado School of Medicine. In addition, he completed graduate school and earned his PhD in Molecular Biology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. His current research focuses on identifying and enhancing the restorative and neuroprotective aspects of sleep that are lost with aging and neurodegenerative disease. He is currently leading a study that is utilizing at-home electroencephalography (measurement and recording of electrical activity in the brain) to characterize neuroprotective brain communication events during sleep as early biomarkers of neurodegenerative disease. Additionally, he is leading a study that seeks to enhance these beneficial sleep functions through the use of non-invasive brain stimulation as a potential treatment and/or preventative for Alzheimer's disease.
