Cognitive and Geriatric Neurology Team
The CoGeNT Clinic focuses on providing comprehensive, evidence-based and up-to-date neurologic care for two groups of individuals: adults experiencing a progressive loss of cognitive function (e.g. memory, language, or visual spatial skills) and those over 65 with a variety of neurologic conditions including gait and balance problems, dizziness, post-stroke cognitive impairment, neuralgia and seizures.
We offer complete testing and evaluation of cognitive and geriatric neurologic conditions on-site at the Health Team Clinical Center and are closely allied with MSU-based Geriatrics, Geriatric Psychiatry, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation providers (including driving evaluations and neuropsychologists) when needed for comprehensive care and disease management.
We offer opportunities for enrolling in industry-sponsored clinical drug trials for the potential treatment of Alzheimer's disease, and opportunities to enroll in non-clinical research aimed at improving the early diagnosis of evolving memory impairment through non-invasive imaging techniques [link to COGENT Lab study recruitment page].
