"putting neuroscience research into practice"

Thomas F. Kinsora, Ph.D.
Clinical Neuropsychologist

​                ​

Center for Applied Neuroscience is an group of independent, formally trained neuropsychologists who specialize in the assessment of cognitive functioning.  Dr. Kinsora has been practicing in Las Vegas, Nevada since 1992.  Our other neuropsychologists include Staci R. Ross, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, and Sharon Jones-Forrester, Ph.D.*

​​The majority of our patients are referred by neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other medical specialties.  However, we also work on complex medical-legal cases and cases pertaining to worker's compensation claims, and disability benefits.  Our medical-legal forensic cases involve the assessments in both civil and criminal proceedings.  Our patients are diagnosed with disorders ranging from Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, to acquired brain injuries due to automobile accidents and sports related concussions. 


Dr. Kinsora, together with Staci R. Ross, Ph.D. ABPP-CN currently oversee the concussion management program​​ for the majority of high schools in Nevada, consulting on over 350 sports related concussions per year.


As a formally trained neuropsychologist, Dr. Kinsora adheres to findings in neuroscience research to guide his assessment of cognition.  Although each assessment is customized to the patient, an assessment of cognition may evaluate such areas as:

                simple attentional buffering
                concentration (mental tracking)
                processing speed
                sustained attention
                expressive language
                receptive language
                abstract reasoning
                spatial processing/construction
                memory/new learning
                executive control
                self regulatory skills
                deductive reasoning
                response inhibition
                motor speed/strength/fine motor dexterity
                visual field sensitivity
                tactile perception
                olfactory functioning
                personality functioning
