Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Paul Eslinger is a clinical neuropsychologist and neuroscientist who utilizes and applies a variety of converging methods (behavioral, cognitive, clinical, fMRI) to detect, differentiate, characterize and relate neurocognitive impairments to diseases of the brain. His research interests have centered on the frontal lobe and its mediation of executive function, social behavior and human adaptation. This has been applied particularly to conditions of frontal lobe stroke and tumor in children and adults, Parkinson’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s disease. As part of this work, rehabilitative approaches are being developed that tap cognitive-behavioral as well as medication interventions.

Dr. Eslinger has collaborated in numerous NIH-, NSF- and private-foundation-funded projects and served on study sections for the NIH, VA and private funding agencies. He has edited/co-edited textbooks on neurocognitive interventions and the practice of behavioral neurology and neuropsychology. In addition, he has published peer-reviewed reports, book chapters and invited commentaries and provided master classes and lectures at numerous universities. 

Clinical interests

Dr. Paul Eslinger provides diagnostic testing and management services to adults with concerns about cognitive and/or behavioral changes that may be related to underlying conditions of the central nervous system. Some diseases of the brain can be subtle and insidious in onset, with many questions about what, if anything, is occurring. Other brain conditions can be quite clear in onset, such as stroke or traumatic brain injury, but recovery and the long-term effects are uncertain.

Dr. Eslinger and his team provide comprehensive assessment of neurocognitive abilities and analysis of each person’s capabilities. The goal is to clearly establish a diagnosis, if one is warranted, and provide education about the test results with discussion to address all patient concerns. Care is coordinated with neurology specialists as well as primary care providers. Follow-up care is available so that symptoms can be monitored as needed and changes made to the treatment plan. Rehabilitative strategies to manage concerns about memory and/or cognitive changes can be developed on an individual basis. Education and coordination for caregivers and family members is welcome as part of the service as well.

In addition to his individual clinical work, Dr. Eslinger is director of the clinical neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience program in the Department of Neurology.
