Neuropsychology Program

About Our Program

The Barrow Neuropsychology Program encompasses the Department of Neuropsychology and the Center for Transitional Neuro-Rehabilitation. These clinical areas are located on the campus of Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and 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 and other movement disorders
  • Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Epilepsy
  • Malignant and benign brain tumors

Pre- and Postsurgical Neuropsychological Assessment and Treatment

Patients being considered for certain neurosurgical procedures may undergo neuropsychological evaluation before surgery. 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 staff of the clinical neuropsychology department. Some of these individuals are then treated at the Center for Transitional Neuro-Rehabilitation, under the clinical leadership of Pamela Klonoff, PhD.

Clinical Education and Research

The Neuropsychology Program is actively involved in training and research. This program has a two-year Residency Program in Clinical Neuropsychology that prepares clinical psychologists to seek board certification and to ultimately function as independent practitioners. In addition, there are a number of ongoing research projects conducted by neuropsychologists.
