Research Interests:

Simon's research interests include the study of executive function and attention related disorders in neurological populations. To accomplish this goal, he uses a combination of neuromodulation with brain stimulation and neuroimaging to define the important brain networks underlying these disorders. He is mentored by Dr. Pascual-Leone and actively involved in several collaborations with members of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulaion.

Clinical Interests:

Simon established and directs the Executive Function and Attention Disorders Clinic for patients with deficits in sustained attention/focus, task switching, planning, organizing and executing. Patients undergo multidisciplinary assessments through the combined efforts of neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and a nurse practitioner. Treatment plans are individualized, evidence-based and include cognitive training at the BIDMC Brainfit club, referrals and medication when appropriate. Treatment outcomes are followed closely using a combination of several metrics.
