Neuropsychology Research

The neuropsychology faculty within the UH Neurological Institute are active in innovative research to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and management of several neurological conditions associated with cognitive comprise. Much of this work is in collaboration with faculty within the Department of Neurology and beyond, including inter-institutional collaborations with the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, the Cleveland Brain Health Initiative, and the Cleveland Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

Example projects include:

  • Enhancing the diagnosis of sports concussion through improved neurocognitive testing and concussion biomarkers.
  • Examining the influence of social adversity and social determinants of health on neurocognitive testing and neurocognitive outcomes.
  • Improving patient outcomes and resilience to Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions through clinical trials, patient caregiver education, and early identification of cognitive/behavioral symptoms of disease.
  • Monitoring outcomes of innovative surgical procedures for intractable epilepsy that allow for better preservation of memory and neurocognitive function following surgery. 
  • Optimizing the treatment of concussion, including using exercise therapies, virtual wellness programs, and clinical trials.
  • Optimizing the identification, evaluation, and rehabilitation of patients with brain injury of all causes, including those suffering from intimate partner and domestic violence.
