Welcome to

Clinical Neuroscience Center



The Clinical Neuroscience Center works closely with many research teams at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Ongoing contact with researchers, close observation of our patients, and extensive consultation with family members help us fine-tune new treatments for the best outcomes possible. It's central to our mission of providing compassionate, respectful, family-centered care to our patients with neurological disorders.

Einstein conducts wide-ranging research, including clinical investigations in the early diagnosis of autism and other disabling conditions, genetic and electrophysiologic studies, and the therapeutic effects of various interventions. A new clinical research initiative is investigating the genetic, neurologic, physiologic and environmental causes of autism and intellectual disabilities. By identifying the biologic bases of these conditions, we hope to be able to find a cure that will free our patients from these disabilities.

Einstein Center for Autism

In addition, Einstein's departments of Pediatrics, Neurology, Psychiatry, Neuroscience, and Molecular Genetics are developing the Einstein Center for Autism. It will provide evaluation, treatment and advocacy for children with autism and autistic spectrum disorder, offer training to professionals, evaluate the efficacy of currently used treatments, and perform research into the cause of this enigmatic and disabling condition.

The Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (RFK-IDDRC)

The RFK-IDDRC has long been at the forefront of research on normal and abnormal brain development and function, and of clinical care for children with IDDs. Today, with reinvigorated leadership, the RFK-IDDRC is dissolving old barriers between neuroscience and genetic research; fostering productive collaborations between basic scientists and clinicians; and advancing knowledge about and treatments for IDDs impacting children.

With access to state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, RFK-IDDRC scientists are leading the way in research on autism, Rett, Fragile X, Niemann-Pick C and other genetic and neurometabolic disorders, and a wide range of seizure disorders.
