Dr. Stephanie Assuras is an associate professor of neuropsychology in the Clinical Neuropsychology Service within the Division of Cognitive Neuroscience at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. After completing her doctoral training in clinical neuropsychology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, she completed an internship at the University of Chicago Medical Center and advanced training in a clinical neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital/Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where she received training in the assessment of both adults and children. She is board-certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology with a specialty in Clinical Neuropsychology. Her primary clinical and research activities have focused on differential diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other movement disorders, and primary progressive aphasia, as well as prognostication of shunt response in normal pressure hydrocephalus via cognitive assessment and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers. In addition to her focus on aging and dementia, she has expertise in assessment of mild TBI, and cognitive behavioral interventions for persisting post-concussion syndrome.
