Jamie Pardini, PhD

Jamie Pardini, PhD, a neuropsychologist, joined the Department of Neurological Surgery in July of 2012, as an assistant professor.

Dr. Pardini received her PhD in clinical psychology with a subspecialization in psychology-law from the University of Alabama. She completed a pre-doctoral neuropsychology internship at the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare system. She then completed a post-doctoral neuropsychology fellowship at the UPMC Sports Concussion Program.

Prior to joining the faculty of the Department of Neurological Surgery, Dr. Pardini was an assistant professor and neuropsychologist in the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program.

Dr. Pardini specializes in evaluation of neuropsychological functioning of patients with neurological disorders, many of whom have undergone, or are scheduled to undergo, neurosurgical intervention. A neuropsychological evaluation can contribute to differential diagnosis, provide the physician with information about how an injury, lesion, or disorder is affecting cognitive function (e.g., memory, concentration), measure progress or treatment effects, and/or assist in treatment planning. Patients must be referred by their neurosurgeon.

In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Pardini has remained active as a researcher, lecturer, and educator in the field of mild traumatic brain injury and sports-related concussion since beginning fellowship in 2003. Recently, Dr. Pardini has joined research teams exploring outcomes of epilepsy surgery, DBS placement, traumatic brain injury, and neurovascular procedures.

Dr. Pardini's publications can be reviewed through the National Library of Medicine's publication database.
