Neuropsychology Experts in Phoenix, Arizona
Established in 1985 under the leadership of George P. Prigatano, PhD, the Section of Clinical Neuropsychology at Barrow Neurological Institute, located in Phoenix, Arizona, encompasses the Department of Clinical Neuropsychology and the Center for Transitional Neurorehabilitation. These clinical areas provide services to a wide range of patients with known or suspected neurological conditions, including:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Stroke and other types of cerebrovascular accidents
- Cerebral and cerebellar aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson's disease
- Alzheimer's disease
- Malignant and nonmalignant brain tumors
Postsurgical Neuropsychological Assessment and Treatment
At Barrow, patients who have undergone brain surgery are offered neuropsychological evaluation to determine what neuropsychological rehabilitation might be needed. Evaluation takes place at the Inpatient Neurorehabilitation Unit, the Outpatient Neuropsychological Consultation Services, or the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and is administered by the staff of the clinical neuropsychology department. Some of these individuals are then treated at the Center for Transitional Neurorehabilitation, under the clinical leadership of Pamela Klonoff, PhD.
Clinical Education and Research
The Section of Clinical Neuropsychology is actively involved in training and research. The Section has a 2-year Residency Program in Clinical Neuropsychology that prepares clinical psychologists to seek board certification and to ultimately function as independent practitioners.
There are a number of ongoing research projects conducted by the neuropsychologists within the Section of Clinical Neuropsychology.
