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 Perioperative Cognitive Assessment Network (PeCAN), which is a pre-surgical neuropsychological clinic assessing older adults with cognitive difficulties prior to undergoing surgical procedures with anesthesia.

Research Focus: Dr. Gullett’s research is focused on (1) the use of machine learning methods to predict intervention outcomes and disease progression in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and (2) the relationship of white matter microstructure with clinical disorders and their associated neuropsychological function.
