Cognitive Neurology Research

At the Center for Cognitive Neurology, our research programs focus on the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, prion diseases, vascular dementia, traumatic brain injury, frontotemporal dementia, and hydrocephalus.

We are devoted to three research areas: basic, translational, and clinical research. Our Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center is emblematic. It is 1 of only 30 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers in the United States supported by the National Institute on Aging. The center spearheads mechanistic research in neurodegeneration and offers study participants and their families the highest-quality diagnostic evaluations and care during the research experience.

The Center for Cognitive Neurology also partners with NYU Langone’s Neuroscience Institute to develop a better understanding of the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders and development of novel therapies. We also have a Brain Donation Program that allows researchers to study the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in order to improve treatment and care for people living with these conditions.

At our core is our commitment to the future: groundbreaking science that opens additional possibilities and effective therapies to find a cure.
