Dr. Brewer serves as the Program Dean of the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Schaumburg (ISPP Schaumburg) and also coordinates the program’s neuropsychology concentration. At ISPP Schaumburg, he teaches courses in neuroanatomy, neuropathology, neuropsychological assessment, and forensic neuropsychology. As a practicing neuropsychologist, Dr. Brewer has worked with numerous patients across the life span and a wide range of clincal presentations that have included traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, dementia, vascular disorders, developmental disorders, infectious disease, and co-occurring psychological conditions (e.g., depression, personality disorders). In addition to his teaching and clinical endeavors, Dr. Brewer also holds a MLitt research degree in cognitive neuroscience from the University of Glasgow, United Kingdom, where he applied event-related potentials to an investigation of word recognition. While pursuing his doctoral work at The University of Montana, he was a two-time recipient of the Dr. and Mrs. Morton D. Greenberger Award for his research focus in medical psychology. His research collaborations in neuroimaging, neurolinguistics, and test validity have appeared in Brain, Psychological Science, and in Lezak’s Neuropsychological Assessment.
