James C. Root, PhD

I am a neuropsychologist in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and also hold an appointment as Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Departments of Psychiatry and Anesthesiology at Weill Cornell Medical College.

My clinical expertise is in the assessment of cognitive abilities (e.g., memory, attention, language, executive functioning) in adults and adolescents following cancer diagnosis and treatment. Two key areas of focus are the effects of chemotherapy treatment and hormone ablation therapy on cognition, particularly in older individuals.
