Functional Imaging Reserve in NeuroHIV

Functional Imaging Reserve in NeuroHIV

The purpose of this research study is to look at the brain's efficiency and ability to make up for deficits in the front of the brain to see if people living with HIV (PLWH) are still able to perform well on various cognitive tasks even though there are other underlying processes at work, like inflammation, that affect the brain in a negative way. Results of this study may provide insight into the pathophysiology of disease and may reveal arenas for future possible interventions in PLWH who have impaired neuropsychological performance.
