Chief, Brain Physiology and Metabolism Section
Stanley I. Rapoport, M.D.Dr. Rapoport received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, Boston, interned in Medicine at Bellevue Hospital, New York, and received post-doctoral training at the Department of Physiology, University of Uppsala, Sweden, and at the Laboratory of Neurophysiology, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). He was appointed as a tenured scientist at NIMH in 1968, and 1978-1999 was Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences, NIA. He currently is Chief of the Section on Brain Physiology and Metabolism, NIA. He is a Fellow of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, the American Academy of Neurology and the Gerontological Society of America.

Research Interests: The Brain Physiology and Metabolism Section (BPMS) studies brain phospholipid metabolism in intact animals and humans, as well as synaptic integrity and function in aging and Alzheimer's disease. Methods involve in vivo tracer studies, chemical analytical techniques quantitative autoradiography, and positron emission tomography (PET). Studies are related to neuroplasticity and signal transduction, central action of drugs, and nutritional regulation of brain fatty acid metabolism.
