About the Unit
The Clinical Evaluations Unit (CEU) will coordinate and facilitate all clinical activities involved in translational research.
The services provided by the CEU include:
- Clinical evaluation (e.g. recording pertinent history, conducting physical examination)
- Detailed neuropsychological evaluations that will identify and characterize specific memory, executive behavioral, and neurocognitive deficits
- Performing advanced neuroimaging that can help identify and characterize associated lesions
- Laboratory evaluation
- Conduct research study procedures
