Patient Care

The Northwestern Medicine Neurobehavior and Memory Health Clinic is the venue for patient care and clinical training. In addition to behavioral neurologists, the clinic staff includes psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and social workers of the CNADC. The clinic received over 2,500 visits last year. It is a national referral center for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. A special focus is on atypical dementias that start at a young age and that selectively impair not only memory but also behavior, language and visuospatial cognition. These disorders include primary progressive aphasia, frontotemporal dementia, posterior cortical atrophy and cognitive impairments associated with Lewy body disease, corticobasal degeneration, progressive supranuclear palsy and motor neuron disease.
