ABOUT DR KINSORA

Dr. Kinsora is a formally trained Clinical Neuropsychologist. He received his undergraduate training at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. He was admitted into the American Psychological Association accredited doctoral program at the California School of Professional Psychology (now part of Alliant International University), receiving a Ph.D. in Psychology with a Specialized Certificate in Neuropsychology and Behavioral Medicine. The specialty in Neuropsychology required specific coursework, internship training, and research in the areas of neurological disorders, and neurocognition.

Dr. Kinsora's doctoral research focused on the differentiation of two types of dementia and was entitled "Anoetic Verbal Priming in Cortical and Subcortical Dementia". His research was presented as part of a panel of research at the 1989 International Neuropsychological Society conference in Vancouver, Canada.

Dr. Kinsora received predoctoral internship training in neuroscience/neuropsychology and clinical psychology at the Veteran's Administration Medical Center, Allen Park, Michigan. He completed additional supervised training between 1988 and 1992 at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan, in Detroit, Michigan, conducting neuropsychological evaluations and providing treatment on the Stroke Unit between 1988 and 1989 and conducting neuropsychological evaluations, providing treatment, and assisting with data collection on the Traumatic Brain Injury Unit between 1989 and 1992. Dr. Kinsora received supervised training during this period under both Manfred F. Greiffenstein, Ph.D. ABPP-ABCN, and Scott R. Millis, Ph.D., ABPP-ABCN.  He also received additional ABD and post-doctoral training under Dr. Greiffenstein at Psychological Systems, in Royal Oak, Michigan between 1988 and 1992.

Dr. Kinsora is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychology at University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  This is an honorary and volunteer position.

As an Adjunct Professor, ​Dr. Kinsora
