Dr. Brown has a varied and extensive background within clinical neuropsychology. This includes both pediatric and adult neuropsychology experience during his internship and fellowship. His clinical experience has included: lifespan services through Easter Seals; Learning Disorder, AD/HD, and Career focused assessments for young adults at Landmark College and for other universities; and private practice with evaluations covering the lifespan, medical, and legal oriented cases. Since 2012, he has been a full-time neuropsychologist at Yale. At the present time, he is the Chief of the Neuropsychology Division, and an Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology where he sees patients with epilepsy, MS, various cognitive complaints, and Retired NFL Players as part of the Concussion Settlement Program.
His research interests also reflect his diverse experience and includes publications and presentations within the areas of sleep disorders, learning disorders, ADHD, epilepsy, memory disorders, and multiple sclerosis. At present, he is focused on improving ways to assess cognitive inefficiency, particularly among MS patients; and visual memory changes associated with epilepsy surgery.
In addition to his paid activities, he volunteers his time on several boards within relevant professional associations (AACN & AACNF), reviews board certification application written samples, and has written grants to improve diversity within the field of neuropsychology.
Neuropsychology is a field that crosses disciplines. Until recently, it was often limited to a few University Medical Centers with specialized neurosurgery units. As a result, practitioners are often unsure of when to refer to a neuropsychologist or how such a referral may help their patients.
This site includes several pages that discuss common reasons for referral and how an evaluation may help your patients or legal clients. In addition, feel free to call me with further questions, concerns, or simply to discuss your practice and patient needs.
