Biography

Adam Brickman is a Principal Investigator of EdSHARe and a Professor of Neuropsychology at Columbia University. Dr. Brickman received his Ph.D. in Neuropsychology from The Graduate School of CUNY and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University.  

Dr. Brickman uses advanced neuroimaging techniques to understand cognitive aging and dementia. His current research efforts focus primarily on "normal" cognitive and structural changes across the adult lifespan. Specifically, he uses structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to try to identify specific areas in the brain or coordinated patterns of brain tissue that are most vulnerable to the effects of age. He is particularly interested in understanding how cognitive reserve and cerebrovascular risk factors interact with the aging brain and cognitive abilities. He also has an interest in using structural and functional neuroimaging techniques, traditional neuropsychological approaches, and functional assessment to understand neuro/psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and dementia.
