Neuromuscular Disorders, Neuro-oncology and Neuropyschology
The Neuro-oncology Program combines the expertise of neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiation and medical oncologists to explore pre-eminent advances in tumor treatment. This program, focusing on patients with primary and metastatic tumors of the brain and spine, is exceptional in its ability to integrate all aspects of care, including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
The Neuropsychology Program provides comprehensive examinations of cognitive impairment in disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, head injury and epilepsy. Department scientists conduct research in brain-behavior relationships, using functional neuroimaging to map cortical functions in healthy individuals and in patients with neurological disease. A particular research interest of the program is functional brain imaging of human olfaction.
