The Cognitive Neurology Clinic (CNC) consists of a team of Neurologists and Neuropsychologists brought together by a common interest in understanding brain-behaviour relationships.
We are primarily interested in the neural underpinnings and mechanisms of cognitive functions like memory, language, and executive functions. We study patients with stroke, dementia, head injuries, and encephalitis as well as healthy adults. Our work involves doing detailed clinical and neuropsychological assessments that aid in accurate diagnosis of neurological conditions, treatment and designing of rehabilitation plans.
Our primary focus is to diagnose and treat patients with neurological disorders better. At the same time, we also try and understand how memory and language functioning are affected in healthy ageing, stroke, Mild Cognitive Impairment, and dementia.
The Clinic is currently running from Manipal Hospitals, Bangalore and Annasawmy Mudalier General Hospital, Bangalore. It is an initiative of Dr. Ratnavalli Ellajosyula, cognitive neurologist at Manipal Hospitals, Bangalore. The neuropsychology division of the clinic is led by Ms. Jwala Narayanan.
