Joel Kramer, PhD, USCF.

Dr. Kramer has been extensively involved in studying the cognitive changes associated with brain disorders for the past three decades. He has co-authored widely used neuropsychological measures of memory and executive functioning. Much of his work has been devoted to identifying the different ways in which aging and neurodegenerative diseases affect memory and other abilities and in utilizing these differences to improve differential diagnosis in clinic.

Presently, Dr. Kramer's active areas of research use neuroimaging, neuropsychology, neuroimmunology and genetics to study the underlying biological mechanisms of cognitive aging, the cognitive effects of cerebrovascular disease and frontotemporal dementia and the relationships between cognitive functioning, behavioral control and reward systems.
