The Center for Cognitive Neurology (CCN) focuses on improving the understanding and treatment of diseases and injuries to the nervous system. Specializations often viewed as disparate are integrated within a single, collaborative center, combining efforts in the latest and most promising areas of research with a compassionate and knowledgeable team of physician-scientists. Our neurologists conduct research in the risks, predictors, prevention, diagnostic tests and potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease, cognitive impairment, and other related conditions and have expertise in evaluating, diagnosing and treating individuals with brain conditions that affect memory and/or thinking (cognition).
The close collaboration between our physicians and scientists is one of our unique strengths, enabling us to provide patients with the best care available as we work to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure neurological diseases affecting cognition. Our education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain has far reaching impact.
