Dr. Brian Levine is a senior scientist at the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest Health Sciences, professor in the Departments of Psychology and Medicine (Neurology), University of Toronto, and a clinical neuropsychologist. He is interested in the function and dysfunction of large-scale neural systems as expressed in complex human behaviours, including episodic and autobiographical memory and executive functioning. He studies syndromes seen in patients with traumatic brain injury, focal brain lesions due to strokes and tumors, dementia, and psychiatric disorders, as well as healthy younger and older adults. His research is focused on developing empirically supported measures of naturalistic mnemonic and executive processes and using these to inform both theory and clinical practice. Dr. Levine uses novel assessment techniques, coupled with multimodal neuroimaging (structural and functional MRI, EEG, and MEG) in his research.
