The mission of the Neuropsychology Division is to deliver psychological services meeting the highest standards of the profession of psychology and to contribute to UTHealth’s mission to provide exceptional educational training, clinical services, and advancements in research. The division specializes in the comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation and psychodiagnostic assessment of adults with a broad range of disorders that include Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, cerebrovascular disease, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, and psychiatric disorders. Pre- and post-surgical evaluation for deep brain stimulation (DBS) and capacity evaluations are also a significant component of the program’s clinical service. Other services offered include cognitive rehabilitation and psychotherapy. In addition to serving a population of individuals with diverse neurological conditions, our location in a large metropolitan area allows us to serve individuals from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses.

The division’s primary outpatient clinic is located in the Neurocognitive Disorders Center, which also houses the department’s neuropsychiatry program. Ancillary outpatient clinics include The Center for Healthy Aging, a comprehensive, interdisciplinary outpatient clinic for geriatric primary and subspecialist care and the Huntington’s Disease Society of America Center for Excellence, one of only 39 across the country and the only center in Texas with the prestigious designation. The training hospital for the program is Memorial Hermann Hospital, where neuropsychology functions in a consultative role on several inpatient units. Minor rotations in clinical neuropsychology are offered at various sites in the Texas Medical Center, including MD Anderson Cancer Center and Baylor College of Medicine.
