Jeremy Grant

I'm pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in clinical neuropsychology. I'm a member of Dr. Lisa Rapport's neuropsychology research lab, where we collaborate with researchers and clinicians from the Wayne State University School of Medicine and Harper University Hospital Neurology Clinic. My current research examines how intellectual-enriching leisure activities can help buffer the onset of cognitive deficits in people with multiple sclerosis.

I'm currently completing my APA pre-doctoral internship in clinical neuropsychology at the University of Florida, where I provide assessment and therapy services to adults with neurological disorders, including neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, Parkinson's disease and related disorders), acquired brain injury (stroke, traumatic brain injury), and neurodevelopmental disorders (ADHD, learning disabilities). I also provide cognitive rehabiltiation to adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
