The fields of neurology and psychiatry are being brought closer together by advances in basic neuroscience, genetics, pharmacology, and neuroimaging. Each field offers unique perspectives for understanding diseases of the brain and central nervous system, and the reunification of the two fields are providing increasing insights into the mind-brain.
In 2003 the Division of Neuropsychiatry at Rhode Island Hospital was established to evaluate and treat individuals with brain-behavior disorders. Working in conjunction with several of RIH's programs, the division collaborates with the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, the Division of Neuropsychology, the Mood Disorders Program, and the Aging and Dementia Program. The division of neuropsychiatry is affiliated with Brown University's departments of psychiatry and neurology, and conducts studies sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the American Epilepsy Society, the Epilepsy Foundation, other private foundations and the departments of psychiatry and neurology at Rhode Island Hospital.
We are located at Rhode Island Hospital, Potter Building – 3rd Floor. Public parking is available at Public Lot B across from the Ambulatory Patient Care (APC) building.
