The Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology Clinic at Vanderbilt is designed to evaluate problems of memory, language, and thinking that can occur with aging. Using clinical and family interview, neurologic exam, neuropsychological testing, neuroimaging, and laboratory work, the clinic provides diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of higher cognitive function. The initial appointment serves as a starting point for treatment of symptoms, provides advice and referrals for support mechanisms, and offers information on available cutting-edge research opportunities at Vanderbilt for individuals. Follow up appointments are used to assess progression, make adjustments or augmentations to the medication, and help patients and their families make decisions regarding long-term planning and care.
The Vanderbilt Disorders Research lab studies how memory breaks down in healthy and diseased aging.
The Vanderbilt Cognition and Movement Group studies cognition in Parkinson's disease and related disorders.
