Dr. Soble is board certified in Clinical Neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) and an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Neurology. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology as well as a master’s degree and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He completed a 1-year Clinical Psychology Internship and 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the James A. Haley VA Hospital in Tampa, FL. While on Fellowship, he also completed training at the University of South Florida/Tampa General Hospital Comprehensive Epilepsy Program. Prior to joining the faculty at UIC, he was a Staff Neuropsychologist at the South Texas Veterans Healthcare System in San Antonio, TX. His clinical interests include neuropsychological assessment of adults with dementia, complex neurological/medical disorders, epilepsy and traumatic brain injury (TBI), as well as personality assessment and working with veteran/active duty military populations. His research broadly investigates the psychometric/diagnostic properties and clinical utility of neuropsychological tests (e.g., performance validity tests), TBI, and epilepsy.
