Katherine Rankin



Katherine Rankin is a neuropsychologist who specializes in assessing cognitive and emotional symptoms in patients with memory disorders.

In her research, Rankin examines neurological changes than can alter personality and social behavior in people with dementia. She is working to develop tests of social and emotional cognition that will allow earlier, more accurate diagnoses of neurodegenerative diseases such as frontotemporal dementia and corticobasal degeneration.

Rankin earned a bachelor's degree in psychology at Yale University. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at the Fuller School of Psychology. She completed an internship at the Veterans Affairs Northern California Health Care System's Martinez Outpatient Clinic and at UC Davis Medical Center. She then completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at UCSF.
