The University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry Neuropsychology Program has a rich tradition in the measurement of cognitive and behavioral characteristics of diverse patient groups and a close working relationship with other investigators in a number of departments, including Psychiatry, Neurology, Radiology, Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, Surgery, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Internal Medicine, as well as other Medical Center programs and other University units, such as the schools of Nursing, Public Health, and Engineering and the Institute of Social Research.

The Neuropsychology Program plays an integral role in many clinical research studies and clinical trials by providing neuropsychological evaluations to participants, quality assurance, and by helping to formulate tests, coordinate data collection, and analyze hypotheses in addition to generating and administering its own research programs.

The program evaluates more than 3000 patients annually based on referrals for neuropsychological sequelae associated with general medical and neurological conditions, dementia, as well as pre-surgical evaluations, mood disorders, and neurodevelopmental and learning/attention problems.

The program also completes numerous research-based evaluations for investigators in the Neuropsychology Program and Department of Psychiatry, as well as for researchers throughout the medical center and through contracts with industry.
