Research Interests:
Dr. Buss’s research focuses on the mild stages of Alzheimer’s disease including mild cognitive impairment. Her work investigates the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as a neural marker in patients with cognitive decline. Dr. Buss studies neural plasticity, and how it impacts the brain's ability to recover from a variety of neurologic and psychiatric diseases. She is interested in combining natural mechanisms of enhancing cognitive reserve, including exercise, diet, social and intellectual activity, with novel mechanisms such as noninvasive brain stimulation and new therapeutic interventions.
