The OSU neuropsychology faculty is involved in ongoing longitudinal research, including studies involving contributors and/or collaborators within a number of departments across the university and OSU College of Medicine. Our research has an overarching goal of identifying factors that predict outcomes and have the potential to improve care in the patients that we see.

Patients referred for clinical evaluations may be asked if they are willing to have their test results collected for use as part of ongoing research projects. For patients interested in participating in research, know that all studies must be approved through The Ohio State University Institutional Review Board, which conducts thorough initial and ongoing reviews to ensure that our research is ethically sound and conducted with the privacy and welfare of our patients in mind. In line with international research standards, all personally identifiable information is removed from any clinical data that we collect.
Participation is voluntary, and whether an individual allows his/her test results to be used for research purposes does not have any impact on their evaluation. Results are reported in aggregate form, with no way of identifying individual participants, primarily in scholarly journal publications.
Psychology Education and Training
Ohio State Neuropsychology is actively involved in education of psychology doctoral trainees from local institutions such as The Ohio State University and Ohio University. We are also part of an APA-accredited predoctoral internship program here at Ohio State. Finally, we anticipate development of a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology – stay tuned!
All programs are developed and implemented in consideration of the guidelines outlined in:
Our clinic is also involved in the education and training of medical students and residents in neurology and neuropsychiatry. This includes introduction and exposure to important concepts and processes involved in neuropsychological assessment, integration and interpretation of data, and comprehensive report writing as well as neurocognition, psychometrics and brain-behavior relationships.
