About the Instructor

Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP, is a neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist. He 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. Goldberg’s work contributed to our understanding of hemispheric specialization, frontal lobe functions, memory, and the general principles of functional cortical organization. He research involved mechanisms of amnesia, frontal-lobe syndromes, cognitive impairment in dementias, traumatic brain injury and Parkinson’s disease, and cognitive enhancement. Goldberg’s books The Executive Brain (2001), The Wisdom Paradox (2005), and The New Executive Brain (2009) have been translated into close to 20 languages. He coauthored (with Alvaro Fernandez) The SharpBrains Guide to Cognitive Fitness (2013) and serves as the Chief Scientific Adviser of www.sharpbrains.com. Goldberg has authored several original tests and innovative experimental paradigms and published a number of research papers in peer-reviewed journals. Goldberg is also a practicing neuropsychologist with wide-ranging clinical experience. A sought-after educator, he has taught at major universities worldwide. Goldberg 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. Elkhonon Goldberg was a student and close associate of Alexander Luria, one of the “founding fathers” of neuropsychology as a scientific discipline.
