Treating the Toughest Cases of Depression and Brain Illness

Dementia Care and Cognitive Impairment Clinic

The Neuroscience Center offers treatments for various forms of cognitive impairment, or conditions that act as a barrier to “thinking”. This includes MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment), deficits in global intellectual ability (previously called mental retardation), or other deficits in cognitive abilities (previously called learning disability). Cognitive Impairment may also describe drug-induced cognitive/memory impairment, such as that seen with alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, “steroids” (especially glucocorticoids), or an adverse effect of several other medications.

Cognitive deficits are also caused by environmental factors such as toxic effects of pesticides, nutritional deficiency, or mTBI/TBI. Deficits can also be a result of vascular diseases, and multiple degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy Body Disease, static encephalopathy, and others.

Evaluations and Interventions

Specialized evaluations and interventions include:

  • Neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological assessments to identify changes in functioning
  • SPECT brain imaging
  • External brain stimulation such as rTMS and tDCS
  • HBOT to reduce inflammation that surrounds diseased brain tissue.
  • Perispinal etanercept injections to decrease brain inflammation
  • Oral anti-inflammatory agents such as celecoxib, ibuprofen, minocycline, and methylene blue
  • Cholinesterase inhibitors, NMDA receptor antagonists, nootropics
  • Endocrinological interventions such as GHRH & TRH supplementation
