The Memory Disorders Center

There are a number of clinical programs at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center that are designed to diagnosis and treat memory disorders.  This includes programs that focus on Alzheimer’s disease, Frontotemporal dementia, Huntington’s disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, as well as stroke and related vascular conditions.  Each of these programs is led by an outstanding clinician with many years of experience in clinical care.  Wherever possible, the care is multidisciplinary, involving clinicians from the Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, and Geriatric Medicine.

This website provides information about how to contact the specific program that is of interest to you. It also provides general information about the primary disorders that cause memory problems, how to prepare for an upcoming appointment and where you can find additional information regarding care and support. There is also information about ongoing research on memory disorders at Johns Hopkins, since it is through research that improvements in diagnosis and treatment come about.
