Services

​The neuropsychology service consults on and contributes to diagnosis and management of a wide variety of patients referred by neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, internal medicine, surgery, cardiology and other services. Patients may have dementia (Alzheimer, frontal-temporal, vascular, stroke, etc.), movement disorders (Parkinson, Huntington, etc.), auto-immune and inflammatory disorders (multiple sclerosis, lupus, etc.), immunodeficiency and infectious disorders (HIV, encephalitis, etc.), organ transplants (heart, liver and kidney), and seizure disorders (requiring pre- and post-neurosurgical evaluations, Wada procedure, etc.). There is also an emphasis on neuropsychological and psychological evaluation of patients with behavioral and psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, delusional, major affective, anxiety, adult attention deficit, and substance abuse/dependency disorders.

Approximately 80% of referred patients are between the ages of 18 and 90-something. Nearly all referrals between the ages of 4 and 17 are cases where seizures are present or suspected. Our service typically refers out pediatric referrals where the question is primarily centered on Attention Deficit Disorder or Learning Disability. Residents are expected to increase the breadth of their training through exposure to a variety of populations and presenting complaints. However, there are opportunities to request certain types of training cases to increase competency or enhance specialization with certain populations.
