Established in 1993, the Memory Disorders Clinic at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is one of Ohio’s most comprehensive centers for research, evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

The Ohio State Memory Disorders team of cognitive neurologists, neuropsychiatrists, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, psychometricians and research coordinators, in association with neuropsychologists and psychiatrists, will create an individualized treatment plan for you and your family.

In addition to expertise in memory issues, we have training in neuropsychiatry that allows us to improve a family’s quality of life through skillful management of behaviors often associated with memory disorders, such as depression, restless behaviors, false beliefs, mood changes and sleep disorders.

Why choose Ohio State’s memory disorders clinic for your treatment?

We have:

  • Developed the Self-Administered Gerocognitive Exam (SAGE), which detects early signs of cognitive, memory and thinking impairments
  • The Memory Disorders Research Center, which has conducted more than 100 dementia-related clinical trials over the past 20 years to improve the lives of people and families affected by memory disorders
  • Placed the first deep brain stimulation implant in an Alzheimer's disease patient in the United States as part of a study to determine whether it can stimulate certain areas of the brain to improve thinking and behavior
  • Nationally renowned cognitive specialists who published a widely referenced book on the management of dementia

Ohio State conducts more clinical research and clinical trials on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia than any other medical center in Ohio, giving you more immediate access to the most promising treatments and diagnostic techniques, often long before they are available to the public.
