Professor of Anatomy & Neurobiology, BU School of Medicine

Research Interests

Dr. Rosene is recognized as one of the world’s experts on the anatomy of the temporal lobe limbic system and has published extensively in this area. He is also recognized for his work in the neurobiology of cognitive aging and was Program Director for 15 years of a long-standing NIH Program Project studying the neural bases of cognitive decline using the rhesus monkey as a model of normal human aging. Currently, he is the principal investigator or co-investigator on several other NIH grants that study various aspects of aging and age-related disease in primate models. More recent research interest is the neurobiological bases and facilitation of recovery of fine motor function after cortical stroke in the rhesus monkey with his colleague Dr. Tara L Moore. Most recently he has been funded by NSF to study the neurobiological validity of diffusion MRI tractography of the human connectome.
