Christian LoBue, Ph.D.
Christian LoBue, Ph.D., is a Clinical Neuropsychologist and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurological Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He specializes in neuropsychological assessment and management of behaviors related to concussion, more severe traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and cerebrovascular disorders. He is consulted to perform evaluations to characterize thinking skills such as memory, attention, and language in people with suspected or diagnosed brain conditions and collaborates closely with neurologists, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists to identify and treat patients in both ambulatory and inpatient settings.
Dr. LoBue completed both his doctorate in clinical psychology and postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at UT Southwestern. Licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists, he joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2018.
His research interests focus on informing what role traumatic brain injuries, including concussions, may play in developing cognitive problems later in life and investigating noninvasive brain stimulation as a potential treatment for the cognitive problems associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
Dr. LoBue has authored multiple publications and has been an invited speaker about his research. He has received research funding from the Alzheimer’s Association, Department of Defense, NIH, and other organizations. He serves as an editorial board member for Frontiers in Psychiatry, a committee member of the Research and Editing Consulting Program of the International Neuropsychological Society, a grant reviewer for the Alzheimer's Association, and on the research grants panel of the National Academy of Neuropsychology
Dr. LoBue is a member of the American Psychological Association, the International Neuropsychological Society, the National Academy of Neuropsychology, the Society for Clinical Neuropsychology, and
