Research Summary

As a former Duke Clinical & Translational Science Institute Scholar, Deborah Oyeyemi, MD investigated mood (depression/anxiety) and physiologic measures like heart rate variability as potential predictors of delirium and post-operative cognitive dysfunction after surgery. At Yale, her work has broadened to the exploration of dementia caregiver network changes and how contextual factors like race and ethnicity affect older adult dementia outcomes.
