About Dr. Madigan

Dr. Madigan is a clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in assessment of older adolescents and adults. She received her Ph.D. from City University of New York, completed her clinical internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center as an intern in the Neuropsychology clinical track, and received her post-doctoral training through the Massachusetts Mental Health Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She also completed a pre-doctoral research fellowship at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine in New Jersey. At Metrowest, she provides neuropsychological assessment for those with neurological and psychiatric disorders, including dementia, multiple sclerosis, concussion/traumatic brain injury, ADHD and neurodevelopmental/learning disorders.

Since 2000, Dr. Madigan has been on staff at the Cognitive Neurology Unit (CNU) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is also an Instructor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School. She is one of the lead neuropsychologists in the Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic within the CNU. She has published research articles and presented research at meetings examining memory and processing speed in traumatic brain injury, factors contributing to persistent symptoms in concussion, as well as potential biomarkers of cognitive dysfunction in individuals with multiple sclerosis. She is also actively involved in supervision of graduate students in clinical psychology. Her personal goal in her work with patients is to provide an essential complement to other diagnostic evaluations, focusing on specific interventions to address management of symptoms and provide strategies to be used in everyday life, to help patients compensate for cognitive problems (such as in memory or attention) and provide recommendations in implementing lifestyle strategies to improve overall quality of life. In her free time, she enjoys going for walks and spending time with family and friends.
