Dr. Holtzer is a Professor of Psychology at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and of Neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He holds an MA and a PhD from the State University of New York at Binghamton. Dr. Holtzer completed his internship training in clinical psychology at the Rusk Institute of New York University. He also completed a T-32 post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology and cognition in aging at the cognitive neuroscience division of the Sergievsky Center of Columbia University Medical Center. He is licensed as a psychologist in New York State.

Dr. Holtzer’s research interests are in cognitive aging, dementia and in the interplay between cognition, mood and motor function vis-à-vis aging and diseases that affect the central nervous system. Dr. Holtzer is also the director for the Clinical Neuropsychology minor.
