About Joseph M Gullett

Clinical Focus: Dr. Gullett conducts adult neuropsychological assessments across a broad range of ages and referral reasons. The majority of his neuropsychological assessment referrals come from the Neurology department and focus on older adults with changes in cognition.

Research Focus: Dr. Gullett’s research is focused on (1) the use of Artificial Intelligence methods to predict intervention outcomes and disease progression in older adults with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and (2) the relationship of white matter microstructure with clinical disorders and their associated neuropsychological function.
