    Brandon E. Kopald, Psy.D., ABPP-CN is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Neurology at UCSF. He received his BA in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Roosevelt University. He completed a pre-doctoral Clinical Psychology Internship, specializing in Neuropsychology, at Northshore-Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Cohen Children's Medical Center. He followed with a two-year fellowship in neuropsychology and clinical magnetoencephalography evaluations for presurgical epilepsy patients at the University of New Mexico Epilepsy Center and the Mind Research Network. He co-directed the neuropsychology clinic and training program at Highland General Hospital before joining the faculty in Neurology at UCSF.

    Dr. Kopald performs neuropsychological and WADA evaluations for patients in the Epilepsy Center and assists in surgical planning. His clinical and research interests focus on identifying cognitive, psychological, and biological factors that impact treatment outcomes. He is also interested in understanding the impact of preoperative language mapping on post-surgical outcomes. He continues to also focus on investigating the differences in treatment outcomes (surgical and pharmacological) for patients with epilepsy and co-morbid neurodevelopmental disorders, with a particular focus on individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Lastly, he takes an active role in training the next generation of clinical neuropsychologists.
