Daniel R. Bateman, MD
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
It is important not to lose sight of the person and their family when someone develops a brain illness. I work with persons with cognitive impairment, major neurocognitive disorders (dementia, Alzheimer’s disease), older adults with mental illness, and family caregivers. Helping patients and families navigate the complexities, treatment options, disease course and current medical understandings of neurocognitive disorders and mental illness are among the most rewarding aspects of my work. I have a particular research interest in the treatment of neuropsychiatric symptoms (depression, anxiety, psychosis, irritability) associated with dementia and pre-dementia syndromes.
My research interests are in studying, designing and implementing more effective interventions to treat the neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia, and utilizing technology to help older adults age in place, maintain their independence and improve their quality of life. I am an investigator at the Indiana University Center for Aging Research and The Regenstrief Institute.
