Dr. Morrow is a tenured professor and board-certified neuropsychologist with more than 25 years experience in clinical and epidemiological research addressing neurobehavioral and psychiatric functioning in adults. Her work has specifically dealt with information-processing and cognitive deficiencies (e.g., memory, attention) that result from various medical disorders (e.g., diabetes), exposure to various neurotoxins (e.g., lead, solvents), head injury, and cognitive decline in older individuals with dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease. She has received grant funding from the National Institutes of Health for the past 20 years. Dr. Morrow helped to develop and publish several normative studies of neuropsychological tests and test batteries, including the Pittsburgh Occupational Exposures Test Battery (POET), a continuous performance test, and a computer-based assessment of mild cognitive impairment (CAMCI) to aid in the early detection of mental status changes in the elderly.
