Neuropsychology Brain Tumor Lab

The Neuropsychology Brain Tumor Lab, directed by David Sabsevitz, PhD, conducts patient-centered research that seeks to better understand how brain tumor treatment affects cognitive processes and brain neurophysiology. Current research in the lab, funded by a pilot grant from the Froedtert Foundation, examines the effects of whole brain radiation on brain morphology using standard clinical and advanced imaging techniques (e.g., diffusion tensor imaging), developing models to predict cognition outcome following brain radiation, and examining the relationship between changes in functional connectivity and cognitive changes following brain radiation. This research involves collaborations with Dr. Joseph Bovi from Radiation Oncology and Dr. Peter LaViolette from Radiology.
