Overview and Mission
The Behavioral Neuroscience and Alzheimer's and the Memory Disorders Clinics, located at The University of Arizona Health Sciences Center in Tucson, were developed to evaluate and treat a wider range of neurobehavioral disorders than is usually offered by health care institutions. Behavioral neuroscience is a relatively new medical discipline that incorporates neurology, neuropsychology, and psychiatry, to offer patients a broader range of evaluation and treatment than was heretofore possible. The goal of the Memory Disorders Clinic is to evaluate various types of memory dysfunction through the use of neuropsychological testing.
