The Aging Brain Clinic is an interdisciplinary clinic (neurology, geriatrics, geropsychiatry, neuropsychology) focused on optimizing cognition to minimize decline in older adults with cognitive impairment   

Older adults experience cognitive changes as part of the normal aging process.  Some cognitive changes may reflect a cognitive disorder.  There are many benefits to early evaluation and  diagnosis.  

Our patients are exhibiting some impairment in cognition based on historical report from a patient or caregiver.  Most of our patients are over 50 years old and have had cognitive impairment for less than three years.  

What We Do

Evaluate and treat cognitive disorders:

  • Cognitive Testing
  • Sleep and Behavior Assessments
  • Brain Imaging
  • Lab Tests

Implementation of interventions that focus on factors that impact cognition including:   

  • Sleep
  • Mental Health
  • Medications
  • Adjustments to Cognitive Change

Interventions are typically implemented intensely over the course of 1 year    

Follow up visits are coordinated with our advanced practice providers and primary care providers.    

We also facilitate participation in clinical trials and other intervention studies related to cognition:
