Dr. Christian LoBue is a Clinical Neuropsychologist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is consulted to evaluate and assist with the management of behaviors associated with a wide variety of neurocognitive syndromes. He specializes in the assessment of cognition in concussion, more severe traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and cerebrovascular disorders.

Dr. LoBue's research focuses on informing what role traumatic brain injuries, including concussions, may play in developing cognitive problems later-in-life and investigating noninvasive brain stimulation as a potential treatment for the cognitive problems associated with neurodegenerative disorders. He leads the Brain Aging, Injury, and Modulation Lab (BRAIN Lab) where multiple biomarker studies and clinical trials are being carried out through funding from the Alzheimer's Association, Department of Defense, NIH, and other organizations.

Dr. LoBue earned his PhD in clinical psychology and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. He has authored multiple publications and been an invited speaker about his research. He serves as an editorial board member for Frontiers in Psychiatry, a committee member of the Research and Editing Consulting Program of the International Neuropsychological Society, a grant reviewer for the Alzheimer's Association, and on the research grants panel of the National Academy of Neuropsychology
