Dr. Brandt obtained his undergraduate education at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and then went on to obtain his master’s and doctoral degrees in experimental and physiological psychology from Boston University. Since 1981, he has been on the faculty of the Johns Hopkins University, where he is currently Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Professor of Neurology in the School of Medicine. He is also Professor in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Dr. Brandt’s research focuses on the neuropsychology of memory and other cognitive disorders as they appear in Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and other dementia syndromes. He has developed several widely-used neuropsychological tests, including the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test - Revised and the Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status. Dr. Brandt has also investigated the cognitive changes associated with epilepsy and its treatments, the psychological consequences of genetic testing for neuropsychiatric disorders, and improved methods for neuropsychological assessment. He has published over 325 articles and book chapters on these and related topics.

Dr. Brandt is a Fellow of both the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Association of Psychological Science (APS), and is board-certified by the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology. He has served on the governing boards of the International Neuropsychological Society, the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology, and numerous editorial and professional advisory boards. Dr. Brandt served as President of both the APA’s Division of Clinical Neuropsychology (2000-2001) and the International Neuropsychological Society (2004-2005). He served on the Medical and Scientific Advisory Board of the Alzheimer’s Association from 1992 to 1994, and is currently on the editorial board of its journal, Alzheimer’s & Dementia. He is also a senior editor of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and on the editorial boards of the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology and Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology. more
