The Division of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurology at Rhode Island Hospital was established to evaluate and treat individuals with brain-behavior disorders, to conduct neuropsychiatric research, and to provide education on neuropsychiatric disorders. Neuropsychiatry addresses the overlap between brain and behavior.

Specialists provide consultative evaluations for inpatients and outpatients at Rhode Island Hospital. The neuropsychiatric examination provides a clinical assessment and treatment recommendations coordinating the neurologic, psychiatric, neuropsychological, and psychosocial domains.

Our Programs

The Consultative Neuropsychiatric Evaluation (CNE) is a specialized, integrated assessment of the complex interactions of brain and behavior. The CNE involves a complete mental status examination with bedside neuropsychiatric cognitive testing, general neurological examination, and with school-age children, an examination of minor neurological issues.

Our program is affiliated with Brown University's departments of psychiatry and neurology and conducts studies sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the American Epilepsy Society, other private foundations and the department of psychiatry at Rhode Island Hospital.
