Cynthia A. Munro, Ph.D. (Neuropsychology)

Many men with KS have cognitive abnormalities and/or emotional symptoms that range from subtle to severe and can interfere with social, academic, and occupational functioning. Management of these features associated with KS begins with their identification through neuropsychological examination. Such examinations allow for the development of individualized treatment and remediation recommendations.    

Cynthia Munro, Ph.D. is a board-certified neuropsychologist who completed her undergraduate studies in psychology at The Ohio State University. She earned her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Kent State University, after which she completed a fellowships in Neuropsychology and Psychiatry Research at the University of Pittsburgh’s Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. She joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in 2000.  

Dr. Munro’s research interests focus on sex differences in cognitive disorders, and how these differences change with advancing age. Because sex hormones are thought to underlie many of the differences between men and women, the relation between hormones and cognition is an important aspect of Dr. Munro’s research. Typical modes of investigation involve the integration of neuropsychological test data and functional imaging (particularly PET imaging) data. Journals publishing Dr. Munro’s work include Biological Psychiatry, Synapse, and Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

Dr. Munro sees patients in the Medical Psychology Clinic, which is located in the Meyer Building at the East Baltimore campus of Johns Hopkins.
