Cognition Neuroscience

The NYU Cognitive Neurology Program is an out-patient specialty clinic dedicated to providing state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatments for adults with brain-based memory, perceptual, cognitive, or emotional impairments. The NYU Cognitive Neurology Program is also committed to conducting varied clinical investigations in this area. Brain disease can cause intellectual impairments of profound complexity. The diagnosis and management of the cognitive and behavioral impairments accompanying diseases such as epilepsy, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, or systemic illness often require an integrated approach by a team of multidisciplinary experts. 

The NYU Cognitive Neurology Program is staffed by a diverse group of specialists: neurologists with expertise in behavioral neurology and epilepsy, a neuropsychiatrist/ psychopharmacologist, senior clinical research neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, clinical research nurse specialists supervising drug trials, and clinical social workers experienced in neurological disease. Our specialists work closely with other branches of the Department of Neurology at NYU Medical Center and have close ties with the Rusk Institute for cognitive rehabilitation and speech therapy.
