His clinical work includes epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, brain tumors, neurodevelopmental injuries, intracarotid amytal procedures (aka Wada procedures), intraoperative brain mapping, and solid organ transplant. His research interests include medical disorders affecting cognitive changes, normative data, and demographic influences on neuropsychological testing. He serves on the Professional Advisory Board for the Epilepsy Foundation of America, San Diego Chapter and the Clinical Advisory Committee for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Pacific South Coast Chapter. Dr. Norman is active in disaster mental health and is co-chair of the American Red Cross San Diego/Imperial Counties chapter Disaster Mental Health Team.
