Eastern Michigan University's Center for the Advancement of Neurobehavioral Health is a team of faculty and graduate students in clinical psychology dedicated to improving the lives of individuals across the lifespan through research and clinical service.
What We Do
We promote neurobehavioral health across the lifespan. Neurobehavioral health addresses prevention, assessment, and treatment in complex populations that present with a myriad of psychological, cognitive and medical problems. It focuses on neurodevelopmental and neurocognitive disorders. Neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder typically present in childhood, and later-life neurocognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, or traumatic brain injury, create pressing public health concerns across the lifespan. Emotional and behavioral challenges often accompany cognitive difficulties and require specialized skill sets from providers and care partners. EMU CANH offers solutions to healthcare systems and families through research and clinical efforts.
