Developing faster computers
Kavi focuses his research on computer
systems architecture, hoping to design
better, faster computers and hardware
that consumes very little power. He
also is researching ways to better
manage computer memories for lava-
based applications. The National Sci-
ence Foundation, the Texas Advanced
Research Program and NASA have
funded his research.
Memory Clinic patients undergo a
thorough assessment to determine if
their memory problems are due to
normal changes that occur with aging,
treatable physical causes or chronic
changes in brain function. Memory
loss can be linked to a variety of
causes, including certain medications,
tumors, diabetes, stroke, depression,
vision or hearing loss, cardiac or
pulmonary complications, vitamin
deficiencies, Alzheimer's disease or
simple stress, according to Health
Science Center specialists.
Immediately after the assessment,
patients review the results with a
psychologist and discuss specific
recommendations and strategies to
improve their memory. Patients can
also have a report of this assessment
sent to their doctor.
Memory Clinic patients are seen in
the new six-story Patient Care Center
on the UNT Health Science Center
