Clinical Research Summary
Dr. Gerald Tramontano conducts a variety of sponsored and investigator initiated pharmacological, nutraceutical and neurodiagnostic research. As a Principal Investigator Dr. Tramontano has completed approximately 70 clinical research studies. His clinical research experience in drug development ranges from bioavailabilty / bioequivalent studies, as well as, first in humans Phase I studies through Phase IV clinical trials. The majority of his clinical research has been investigating functional brain mapping, neuromodulation, behavioral, biological and pharmacological treatments for patients with a variety of cognitive and neuropsychiatric conditions, in particular – neurodegenerative diseases such as Azlheimer’s disease. He has authored several published neuroscience-related and pharmacology articles in medical and forensic journals.
Dr. Tramontano specializes in the practice of clinical neuropsychology. As the Medical Director for the NeuroCognitive Institute (NCI) he provides direct patient care and supervises cliniciancs, medical and psychology interns, residents and fellows in clinical neuropsychology, behavioral neurology and neurology. NCI serves patients with a variety of cognitive and neuropsychiatric conditions ranging from ADHD through Alzheimer’s disease. NCI provides neurodiagnostic services such as functional cortical assessments via cognitive testing and neurobehavioral exams, as well as, functional brain mapping using low and high density electroneuroimaging and fMRI. Treatment services include cognitive rehabilitation, non-invasive neuromodulation, behavioral management, psychotherapy, behavioral health and psychopharmacological consultations. Dr. Tramontano has completed fellowship training at Brown Univesity School of Medicine in clinical neuropsychology, neuromodulation training at Harvard Medical School Sidney Baer Clinical Fellowship training in tDCS at the Boston Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at the Berenson Allen Center for Non-invasive Brain Stimulation and presently is an fMRI Visiting Fellow at Harvard Medical School’s Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Bioimaging.
