The Division is the home for the state-funded UF Memory Disorders Center, many collaborations with neuropsychology (inclusive of a university inter-disciplinary center), and a number of collaborations with the McKnight Brain Institute/Fixel Institutes. In addition to coordinating memory clinic initiatives, the Division directs and coordinates many of the activities of the Trauma, Concussion, and Sports (TRACS) Neuromedicine (TRACS) program and the newly formed UF Brain Health program. The Division coordinates research initiatives for all of the above programs and functions as the clinical arm of the proposed NIA funded Memory Disorders Center (formerly known as ADRC). The Division has two fellowship programs (Behavioral Neurology and TBI/Concussion).
