Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BN&NP) Fellowship

Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BN&NP) Fellowship

The VAGLA/UCLA Neurobehavior Program sponsors one of the oldest behavioral and cognitive neurology training programs in the United States. Fellows in the program benefit from its resources and join a group of clinicians and scientists probing brain/behavior disorders.

The Program offers a Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BN&NP) Fellowship. This training combines strengths in the areas of clinical cognitive disorders, dementia, and neurological neuropsychiatry. Bedside mental status assessment and cognitive research evaluations are aspects of the fellowship. Specific clinical and research interests include explorations into frontal-executive functions in frontotemporal dementia, social cognition in dementia, perceptual disturbances in focal brain disorders, language disturbances, the diagnosis and management of the dementias, "organic" psychoses, "organic" affective disorders, psychiatric syndromes accompanying movement disorders, and others.
