Our research aims to employ behavioral measures of cerebral function to elucidate the mechanisms leading to dementia in neurologic disease. Cognitive and psychiatric tests are administered to patients and healthy volunteers, providing metrics of, for example, intelligence, mental processing speed, memory, executive function, depression, and personality. The test results are frequently correlated with brain MRI and activities of daily living.
Multiple Sclerosis Research
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Our research focus is cognitive dysfunction in MS with an emphasis on assessment, test validation, personality, and MRI predictors.

With help from patients and volunteers, we hope to better understand the cognitive and psychological features related to specific diseases causing dementia, including Alzheimer’s and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

MS Employment Optimization Program
The purpose of this program is to optimize rapid action to preserve income for participants with multiple sclerosis at risk for job loss. This is a multi-site study including 9 neurologic treatment centers for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the United States. The optimization program involved interventions to prevent or respond to job loss with data collection through the Buffalo Vocational Monitoring Survey (BVMS).
We utilize the accessibility of the web to speed the patient screening process, streamline evaluation for clinicians and help patients keep their doctors informed. Patients and informants are able to take surveys in the waiting room or at home, saving time and energy on all levels of clinical practice.
Please take time to look at our publications, as we take pride in the progress we have made in the field of neuropsychology.
