Neurobehavioral Core (NBC) Services
The Division of Psychology offers support to investigators across Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital whose research calls for neuropsychological and behavioral assessments. These services are performed through Psychology's Neurobehavioral Core (NBC). The NBC frequently collaborates with the Research Resources Office (RRO) to understand the unique needs of each study and develop a plan for how to best meet those needs. NBC personnel include Ph.D. and master's level examiners with extensive training in neuropsychological and behavioral assessments. The NBC operates on a fee-for-service model; however, some arrangements may cover effort for identified NBC personnel.
