Biography

Michael Basso is a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist. His research concerns the study of brain-behavior relationships in people with multiple sclerosis or severe mental illness. In particular, he investigates correlates of neuropsychological dysfunction in these disorders. Recent representative publications concern memory remediation in people with multiple sclerosis, and neuropsychological dysfunction in people with major depression. He recently completed a multi-year NIH funded project involving people with multiple sclerosis. This project examined whether neuropsychological impairment corresponds with an inability to provide competent informed consent to participate as a medical research subject. By extension, this research will have implications for clinic settings wherein a person with multiple sclerosis may have questionable ability to make medical treatment decisions because of cognitive impairment.
