National Jewish Health has a Neuropsychology Program to assess cognitive functioning in adult patients.  Cognitive impairment may occur in patients due to certain medical conditions, injury, or an underlying disease of the central nervous system, such as Alzheimer’s disease or epilepsy.

Neuropsychology is the study of the relationship between the brain and behavior. A neuropsychologist is a psychologist with special training in brain function and the evaluation of people who are experiencing cognitive difficulties.

Our program has active clinical, research, and training components focused on neuropsychological complications of chronic medical illness and neurological disorders. In addition to strong collaborations with other National Jewish Health programs, our neuropsychologists have faculty appointments at other institutions as well.
