Dr. LoGalbo is a Board Certified Clinical Neuropsychologist and Florida Licensed Psychologist specializing in neurocognitive assessment and treatment of individuals with traumatic brain injuries, sports concussions, and memory disorders including Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), Alzheimer's disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases. He has expertise in comprehensive assessment of neuropsychological functioning and is passionate about assisting patients and their families with the process of recovery, emotional adjustment, and acceptance to their new state of "normal" following development of these injuries and illnesses. He also has proficiency in treating patients with a variety of other neurological conditions including brain tumors, stroke, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.
At Florida Tech, Dr. LoGalbo teaches graduate classes including Fundamentals of Clinical Neuropsychology, Neuropsychological Assessment I and II, Health Psychology, Psychopharmacology, and Gerontology and Neurodegenerative Diseases. He also is the primary clinical supervisor for neuropsychology activities. He is the clinical director and primary supervisor of Florida Tech's Sports Concussion Management Program, working closely alongside Florida Tech’s excellent Athletic Department and training staff. He is also the clinical neuropsychology and research director at the Health First Florida Memory Disorder Clinic (MDC), a state-sponsored program affiliated with Health First Aging Services in Brevard County, with a goal of assisting elderly patients with neurodegenerative diseases and their families. Dr. LoGalbo supervises doctoral research projects (DRP's) and other graduate and undergraduate research as well, and he assists with clinical proficiency examinations (CPE's) within the Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program. He serves on several committees at Florida Tech including the Student-Athlete Mental Health Committee, School of Psychology Research Committee (Chair from 2019-present), Clinical Psychology Student Special Review Committee (SSRC), and occasionally on Faculty Search Committees. He serves on multiple committees in the broader community as well, including the Health First Memory Disorder Clinic Clinical Advisory Committee and the Brevard County chapter of the Dementia Care and Cure Initiative (DCCI) Task Force through the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.
Dr. LoGalbo came to Florida Tech after 12 years of clinical practice at Florida Hospital (AdventHealth) in Orlando, with both inpatient and outpatient clinical activities in the Neuroscience Institute and Department of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. He is prior Clinical Co-Director of the Florida Hospital Sports Concussion Management program, and has worked with numerous high school, club, college and professional athletes and athletic programs across Central Florida and beyond. He was also intimately involved in the development of Florida Hospital's Maturing Minds Program, which became Florida's 16th state-sponsored Memory Disorder Clinic (MDC) in 2017. He was an active member of the neuro-oncology team at Florida Hospital, evaluating and treating individuals with brain tumors, and occasionally assisting with specialty procedures such as fMRIs and awake craniotomies. He remains on medical staff at AdventHealth, and also maintains a private clinical practice in Melbourne and Orlando where he focuses on conducting specialized neuropsychological evaluations for the NFL Concussion Settlement, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and in forensic settings.
Dr. LoGalbo earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from New College of Florida in Sarasota. He then earned a PhD in medical/clinical psychology with a focus on neuropsychology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He subsequently carried out a clinical psychology internship (residency) in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington Medical School and Harborview Medical Center, in Seattle, Washington with a focus on neurorehabilitation, neuropsychology, health psychology, and behavioral medicine including nonpharmacological pain management. He enjoyed Seattle so much that he stayed to complete advanced fellowship training in Neuropsychology and Gerontology at The Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle and American Lake, Washington. He is board certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) with specialization in Clinical Neuropsychology, and maintains a part-time private clinical practice focusing on clinical and forensic neuropsychological assessment. He is a member of several professional organizations including The American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN), The International Neuropsychology Society (INS), The National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN), The Sports Neuropsychology Society (SNS), and The Society for Clinical Neuropsychology (SCN) of the American Psychological Association (APA, Division 40). He frequently lectures for local and national organizations, including at One Senior Place in Viera Florida, and for the Parkinson and Movement Disorder Alliance. He has also served as an ad hoc manuscript reviewer for several journals including Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, Frontiers in Psychology section of Neuropsychology, Frontiers in Neurology, and Aging and Mental Health.
Dr. LoGalbo's research interests include exploring factors that influence, predict, or improve outcomes of sports concussion injuries including time to recovery and lingering post-concussion symptoms, as well as factors that mediate the onset and progression of memory disorders or other cognitive decline beyond expectation for age in an elderly population. Outside of neuropsychology, he is also an amateur DJ, enjoys traveling (recent trips include Spain, Greece, Italy, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, and the Czech Republic), and he is a certified yoga instructor and Ashtanga practitioner.
