Murray Grossman, MD, Ed.D., is Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Following research training in Neurolinguistics at the Aphasia Research Center at Boston University and the Boston VA Medical Center with Nelson Butters, Howard Gardner and Edgar Zurif, he did post-doctoral work at MIT with Susan Carey in Developmental Psycholinguistics. Then he returned to Montreal where he completed his MDCM at McGill University. He trained in Internal Medicine at the Royal Victoria Hospital and in Neurology at The Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania. The focus of Dr. Grossman’s research is the neural basis for language and cognition. He pursues comparative studies in patients with a variety of neurodegenerative conditions and obtains converging evidence using fMRI studies in healthy adults. He relates these observations to biofluid biomarkers and biochemical brain analytes obtained at autopsy in neurodegenerative patients.
