At NYU Langone’s Center for Cognitive Neurology, our neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and nurse practitioners provide the highest quality of care for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. A person experiencing memory loss or confusion receives a thorough neurological and psychological evaluation and a detailed plan for managing symptoms.
Our experts can address the changes in thinking, behavior, and mood that may signal Alzheimer’s disease. At the Silberstein Alzheimer’s Institute and the Pearl I. Barlow Center for Memory Evaluation and Treatment, our researchers have helped to develop many treatments for dementia and continue to investigate new approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
Alzheimer’s disease is a chronic, progressive condition, meaning there is no cure, though medication can help to slow the progression of symptoms such as memory loss and confusion and preserve a person’s ability to perform everyday tasks. Our specialists also work to ensure that family members and caregivers receive the support they need.
