Laurie Barclay, MD, is a neurologist who has published more than 60 peer-reviewed journal articles concerning her research on Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. She is editor and author of several chapters in "Clinical Geriatric Neurology," a medical textbook which has been translated into Italian, and has also written many other medical book chapters both for physicians and for the lay public. She has been an invited speaker on her own research and on other topics at medical and scientific meetings and lectures worldwide.

Dr. Barclay received her BA from Princeton University in 1974 and her medical degree from Cornell in 1978. Her training includes a medical internship and neurology residency at the New York Hospital-Cornell, and a fellowship in neurobiology at the Burke Rehabilitation Center-Cornell, where she also served as chief of the spinal cord trauma unit and clinical director of dementia research. After being an assistant professor of neurology at the New York Hospital-Cornell from 1983 to 1987 and at the University of South Florida from 1987 to 1992, she went into private practice and medico-legal consulting.

Dr. Barclay is board-certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, in forensic medicine by the American Board of Forensic Medicine, and in traumatic stress by the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress. In addition to being an associate in the American Academy of Neurology and in the World Federation of Neurology Research Group on Dementia, she is a member of the American Medical Writers Association, the American Medical Association, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Her many awards include 1993 Woman of the Year and listings in "Who's Who in the World" and in other "Who's Who" directories.

While freelance writing for WebMD, Dr. Barclay is also Senior Medical Editor for the "Medical Disability Advisor," and is writing a memoir about her life as an amateur ballroom dance champion with her husband and partner, Richard Collett.
