The Stanford Center for Memory Disorders

The Stanford Center for Memory Disorders

The Stanford Center for Memory Disorders is dedicated to the fight against age-related decline in memory, language, and other cognitive difficulties. There are many different causes of memory loss, and an accurate diagnosis is essential to getting the best treatment. At the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders, an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals work together to provide accurate diagnoses and to guide treatment. Experts from the fields of neuropsychology, psychiatry, nursing, pharmacy, and genetic counseling collaborate closely with our behavioral neurologist physicians, many of whom are leaders in their field. We are committed to providing medical care that is both cutting edge and compassionate.

At the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders, the same faculty members who care for patients also contribute to research on Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. This research spans the full spectrum from bench to bedside: Stanford has numerous researchers investigating the fundamental causes of Alzheimer's disease while others are committed to creating novel treatments. Our faculty of the Center are also investigating advanced neuroimaging technologies and blood sample testing to make early diagnosis possible. Finally, interested patients can participate in the latest clinical trials of new therapies. 

The Stanford Center for Memory Disorders is committed to providing expert, empathetic, and patient-centered care and to leading the way in developing new treatments for patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative illnesses.
