Cook Children’s Neurosciences welcomes new Neuropsychology faculty member

News and Announcements | February 10, 2022 | cookchildrens

The Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center at Cook Children's continues to grow our faculty to meet the needs of our patients. In January 2022, we welcomed Lindsey Carnes, Ph.D. as our fourth neuropsychologist.

Dr. Carnes is well known to Cook Children's having volunteered here during her undergraduate training at Texas Christian University. She subsequently completed an assessment externship in Neuropsychology at Cook Children's and completed her Ph.D. in school neuropsychology through Texas A&M University in August of 2019. She went on to complete a two-year neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship at Arkansas Children's before returning to Fort Worth.

Dr. Carnes remarked, “When I started out at Cook Children's as a 19-year-old college student volunteer, this medical center helped instill in me the importance of connection and collaboration, which has played a large role in shaping me into the clinician I am today. It is such a surreal thing to be coming full circle to where I started out – returning “home” to my roots in the Neuropsychology department and the Neurosciences programs. And, I could not be more thrilled to be back!”

Dr. Carnes has published research on neuropsychological assessment of concussions and completed training at the Sports Concussion Clinic at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. She has also published research on Neurofibromatosis and will be the neuropsychologist staffing the Neurofibromatosis Clinic at Cook Children's. In addition, she will be the primary neuropsychologist working with our rehabilitation care unit (RCU).

In her free time, she enjoys playing with her pug, Watson, hiking and yoga. We are pleased to have Dr. Carnes join our team!
