Welcome to the Clinical Neuropsychology Service

Our Neuropsychology service provides comprehensive neuropsychological assessment for children, adolescents, adults, and elderly populations. The Neuropsychology Service welcomes referrals from neurologists, psychiatrists, and other medical professionals from Columbia University Medical Center and the community at large.

A neuropsychological evaluation is recommended if changes in cognitive function or behavior are suspected or to monitor the neuropsychological effects of medical and surgical therapies over time.

Typical referrals are made to diagnose or rule out various conditions, and to describe their impact on a person's cognitive functioning. Examples of such conditions include, but are not limited to:


  • Memory impairment and Dementia (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Frontotemporal dementia)
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
  • Seizure disorder/epilepsy
  • Stroke and cerebrovascular disease
  • Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) pre-and post-surgical evaluations
  • Traumatic brain injury and concussion
  • Multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases
  • Brain tumor including pre- and post-surgical evaluations
