Christopher Stewart, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Neuropsychology Section of the Department of Behavioral Sciences. His research interests include brain-behavior relationships in epilepsy (e.g., fMRI language lateralization; motor and language reorganization; preoperative prediction of cognitive outcome following epilepsy surgery) and dementia (e.g., MRI volumetric correlates of neuropsychological functioning and functional abilities in Alzheimer's disease; vascular-related neuropathology and cognitive functioning in aging).
