Penn is dedicated to the understanding and treatment of memory disorders via patient care, education and research.
Cognitive Neurology Program
This program provides comprehensive assessment and treatment of memory, language, attention, visual and thinking difficulties. These problems can be caused by a wide range of conditions, such as stroke, head trauma, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, hypertension, dementia, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder and hydrocephalus.
Penn Memory Center
In addition to the cognitive neurology program, Penn also offers patient care through the Penn Memory Center. Patients in this program are typically enrolled in a clinical trial. The Penn Memory Center includes a multi-disciplinary team of neurologists, geriatric psychiatrists, geriatricians, and social workers, devoted to the evaluation and treatment of dementing illnesses.
