Dr. Regan Patrick received his PhD in psychology from McMaster University, where his research examining the cognitive and neural mechanisms of schizophrenia was funded by the prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). He went on to complete an APA-accredited internship at the Medical University of South Carolina, with an emphasis in neuropsychological assessment and research. Dr. Patrick then completed a fellowship in adult and geriatric neuropsychology at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Patrick has continued at McLean Hospital and now holds a clinical and research position within the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry and the Neuropsychology Department. His clinical work focuses on neuropsychological and psychodiagnostic assessment in adult and geriatric patients. His research uses cognitive and brain imaging techniques to better understand the causes and consequences of psychiatric and neurocognitive disorders.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
