Conditions & Treatments
We provide in-depth evaluations of various brain functions including attention, impulse control, problem solving, memory, language, visual perception, sensory-motor skills, intelligence and emotions. Identifying the severity of symptoms and predicting changes when neurosurgery is being considered are important steps when diagnosing neurological disorders and helps us learn more about disease progress.You might be referred for a neuropsychological evaluation for a variety of medical reasons.For adults, this may include diagnoses of Alzheimer’s disease or similar neurodegenerative conditions; predicting how brain surgery may impact thinking abilities; identifying and recommending treatments for the effects of chemotherapy; or diagnosis and...
Excellent clinical care stems from advances in understanding the fundamental basis for abnormalities of the nervous system. These discoveries help us develop new and more effective treatments for nervous system disorders. For this reason, research is an integral part of the Department of Neurology. Our physicians and scientists collaborate on research projects and include world-renowned leaders in their fields. We conduct research that spans the areas of molecular biology, electrophysiology, biophysics, pharmacology, molecular genetics, immunopathology, neurotransplantation and computational neuroscience.Visit yalestudies.org to view available clinical trials or learn more about clinical research at Yale.
