Melanie Cohn, PhD

Neuropsychologist at University of Toronto Tanz Centre for Research in Neurodegenerative Disease and Krembil Brain Institute


Location: Toronto ON Canada

Melanie Cohn is a scientist and clinical neuropsychologist at the Krembil Brain Institute, part of Toronto Western Hospital University Health Network. She is also an assistant professor at the University of Toronto. Her work bridges experimental and clinical cognitive neuroscience. In the clinic, she diagnoses cognitive deficits in various neurological populations and assesses the cognitive risk of neurosurgical treatments, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), in Parkinson’s disease. On the research side, she primarily investigates episodic memory using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques in healthy and clinical populations. Additional research themes include cultural diversity and neuropsychological assessment, as well as social cognition. She collaborates on multidisciplinary studies involving neuroimaging diagnostic tools and neuromodulation by DBS.
