Dr. Ben Harris is a senior clinical Neuropsychologist whose public appointments have included community aged psychiatry at Monash Health, and in the Cognitive Dementia and Memory Service at St Vincent's Health. Dr. Harris will extend and enhance your understanding of cognition and behaviour change.
