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.

Clinical Interests:
Dr. Buss’s clinical practice focuses on cognitive and behavioral neurology. She is focused primarily on workup and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias such as fronto-temporal dementia, Lewy Body disease, and vascular dementia.
