Neuropsychology Research Lab | Policies and Procedures | Current Lab Investigations | Publications Supported by the Neuropsychology Research Lab

  • Initial consultation services with Dr. Mahone are typically supported via the Behavior Science Core of the IDDRC.
  • Billing for testing services - 3 options available:
    • Investigator applies to NBRU for support → NBRU authorizes a specific amount of support (e.g., enough for X subjects to be tested) → Neuropsychology Research Lab bills NBRU on a per subject, per test basis.
    • Investigator pays for Neuropsychology Research Lab services out of their own funding (grant) → Neuropsychology Research Lab bills investigator's budget number on a per subject, per test basis.
    • Investigator pays salary support for a Neuropsychology staff member, buying a certain percentage of the staff member's time to do testing for their research project → NP Lab bills investigator's budget number for agreed-upon percentage of staff member's salary.
