    Gregory Lee, PhD

    Neuropsychologist (602) 406-3671

    Gregory Lee, PhD, is a professor of neuropsychology and director of training in neuropsychology at Barrow Neurological Institute. He is board certified in clinical neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.

    Dr. Lee’s expertise includes the assessment of cognitive and psychological consequences of a variety of neurological conditions, such as epilepsy, neurodegenerative conditions, traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors, and cerebrovascular disease. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and the National Academy of Neuropsychology.

    Dr. Lee received his master’s degree in clinical psychology from Lone Mountain College and his doctorate in clinical psychology from the Florida Institute of Technology. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine.

    Dr. Lee’s research interests include human cerebral hemispheric specialization for memory, language, emotion, and other cognitive functions primarily using functional neuroimaging and epilepsy surgery models.
