Neuro-Oncology Cognition Clinic
When someone has cancer, he or she may experience a lesser known side effect of the disease and/or treatment. The side effect involves changes in cognition — a person’s ability to think, reason and perceive. These changes may occur because cancer in the brain (a brain tumor) or cancer treatment can affect the way the brain works. Learn more about the Neuro-Oncology Cognitive Clinic.

Dedicated to the highest quality patient care, education, and vision research, the faculty and staff strive to provide state-of-the-art clinical and surgical patient care in a compassionate and timely way.
Faculty in the Froedtert & MCW Neuropsychology Clinic work with patients to measure the presence and degree of behavioral impairment due to neurological disease or problems in brain development. This information is used to diagnose neurobehavioral disorders, to differentiate cognitive and psychological conditions, to determine prognosis, and to make treatment recommendations.
