When the Brain Bank of Laboratory of Brain Ageing of the institution was inaugurated he became a member of the coordination for the study of the neuropathology of dementias. Besides his research activities he has been committed with educational programs for Neurologists and Neuropsychologists, editing books for graduate courses, organizing a continuous education program in Neurology, which has originated a series of books entitled ?Conducts in Neurology? published every two years since 1989, writing chapters of books, and giving classes in graduate, residencies and post-graduate courses and in Brazilian and International symposiums and congresses.
