About the Instructor

The series of mental health courses and workshops are provided by Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP (wikipedia) with the participation of additional select faculty. Elkhonon Goldberg is a clinical neuropsychologist and a cognitive neuroscientist with more than 30 years of experience. Goldberg’s clinical practice spans the whole range of neuropsychological disorders, including traumatic brain injury, dementias, neurodevelopmental disorders, and forensic neuropsychology. Goldberg research includes cortical organization, hemispheric specialization, frontal lobes, memory, traumatic brain injury, dementias, schizophrenia, and other topics. Goldberg has authored several influential books and published a number of research papers in peer-reviewed journals. Goldberg is also a sought-after educator who lectures worldwide. He was a Visiting Professor at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of Sydney and has taught at other major universities worldwide. He has mentored a number of students and post-doctoral trainees, many of whom have become prominent neuropsychologists and neuroscientists in their own right. Elkhonon Goldberg is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurology of New York University School of Medicine and a Diplomate of The American Board of Professional Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology. He is a recipient of The Copernicus Prize for his “contributions to interdisciplinary dialogue between neurosciences and neuropsychology, and the Tempos Hominis medal for international medical sciences education.” He is a foreign member of The Venetian Institute of Science, Literature and Arts. His books The Executive Brain (2001), The Wisdom Paradox (2005), and The New Executive Brain (2009) have been translated into close to 20 languages. He co-authored (with Alvaro Fernandez) The SharpBrains Guide to Cognitive Fitness and is the Chief Scientific Adviser of www.sharpbrains.com Elkhonon Goldberg was a student and close associate of Alexander Luria, one of the “founding fathers” of neuropsychology as a scientific discipline.
