May 6th, New York City: Anticipating and Shaping the Neuropsychology of the Future

Heads-up about an upcoming joint meeting by the New York Neuropsychology Group and the Psychology Section of the New York Academy of Sciences.

  • What: Neuropsychology of the future and how we can prepare for it today
  • When: Saturday May 6th, 2017, 10 am – 1 pm
  • Where: Podell Auditorium in Bernstein Pavilion, Mount Sinai Beth Israel 10 Nathan D Perlman Place NY, NY 10003

The Focus

Please join prominent neuropsychologists and industry leaders to explore the future of neuropsychology and how you can harness recent findings and technologies to prepare for impending changes. As we see the intersection of neuropsychology with other fields (multi-modal imaging, technology, biomarkers, etc.), we need to be well-equipped to understand and integrate novel concepts and interventions. We will discuss such issues as:

  • Should assessment be the endpoint, or is personalized treatment/intervention based on assessment/monitoring the future focus?
  • Will technology replace or augment neuropsychologists?
  • How can we lead the industry and help create tests with companies such as Pearson?
  • What’s the alternative to scoring tests by hand?


The Speakers

Robert Bilder, PhD ABPP-CN, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, UCLA, Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior.

Alvaro Fernandez, MA, MBA, CEO and Editor-in-Chief, SharpBrains.

James Holdnack, PhD, Senior Scientist, Pearson Clinical Assessment
