Ellen Grober, Ph.D., is a professor of Neuropsychology in the Neurology Department at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY. She obtained her Ph.D. in cognitive psychology and psycholinguistics at Johns Hopkins University and completed a fellowship in aphasia at New York University. Her research focused on the connections between language and memory contributed to the development of the Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test, an episodic memory test whose performance defines the core clinical phenotype of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Her ultimate goal is to provide a framework that identifies at-risk individuals in clinical settings for early intervention and to ensure a consistently and accurately characterized population for secondary AD clinical trials.
