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?
