From the President of the AUPN

Dr. Steven L. Small, professor of neurology at the University of California, Irvine and director and chief scientific officer of the Medical Innovation Institute at the UC Irvine School of Medicine, has accepted appointment as dean of the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) at The University of Texas at Dallas. He assumed the responsibilities of dean on April 15.

Dr. Small, who holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Maryland in College Park and a medical degree from the University of Rochester, has conducted extensive research on the neurobiology of language and motor skills, and the effects of stroke on these functions. His areas of expertise range from language processing and computational neuroscience to neuroimaging. His research involves direct investigation of human subjects, particularly in speech and language, and more recently clinical and fundamental neurobiological aspects of mild traumatic brain injuries such as concussions.

Dr. Small moved to UC Irvine in 2010 to become chair of the department of neurology after serving for 11 years as a professor of neurology and psychology at the University of Chicago. Earlier, after completing his medical residency at the University of Pittsburgh, he served on the faculties of the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Maryland before moving to Chicago. Small served as editor-in-chief of the journal Brain and Language from 2005 until January 2019. He is the founder and first president of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language and a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Neurological Association.
